Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Faringdon

We were just about to sign contracts for a property in Faringdon. We encountered a snag. Our loan offer with National Westminster Bank runs out on 22/4/2024 but the sellers are insisting on a completion date of 24/4/2024. Can one prolong the loan offer?

I'm buying a new build house in Faringdon with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about the deal as it will impact my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Faringdon is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Faringdon are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Faringdon you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Faringdon may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

I am looking into buying my first house which is in Faringdon and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Faringdon. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Faringdon area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Faringdon. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

I am intending to rent out my leasehold flat in Faringdon. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?

Your lease governs relations between the landlord and you the flat owner; in particular, it will say if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. Most leases in Faringdon do not contain subletting altogether – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.

I inherited a ground floor flat in Faringdon, conveyancing was carried out July 1996. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent flats in Faringdon with over 90 years remaining are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease expires on 21st October 2077

With just 53 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to range between £27,600 and £31,800 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

Your search tool is useful but there are many lawyers listed near Faringdon being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. It would be a lot more helpful if you could recommend a specific firm on the mortgage company approved panel?

We are not in the business of recommending one firm above another as the right Faringdon conveyancing firm for you depends on where your priorities lie. For example you may require a local firm with Faringdon knowledge or you might be looking for the low cost conveyancing. We recommend that you speak to 3 or 4 lawyers listed before you make your choice..
