Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Earley

When it comes to lenders such as Principality, do Earley conveyancers face a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

About to purchase flat in Earley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Earley lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel.

Aldermore have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a house in Earley has been accepted, what happens next?

Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (be sure the solicitors are on the bank’s approved list). Telephone Aldermore or the financial adviser and finalise any relevant paperwork. Aldermore will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Aldermore will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Earley.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Earley. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Earley

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Earley I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Earley for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business offices in Earley and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act gives a safeguard to business lessees, giving them the a statutory right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Earley is one of our numerous areas of the UK in which the firms we work with have offices

My husband and I may need to rent out our Earley garden flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Earley conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Earley do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.

I inherited a 1st floor flat in Earley, conveyancing was carried out 8 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Earley with over 90 years remaining are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2096

With only 75 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.

My husband and I are are looking to find a quality conveyancing lawyer in Earley to assist me in selling my flat. I I am fearful of appointing the wrong one but with lots of Earley conveyancing solicitors to pick from...who do I opt for?
