Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Formby

My partner’s mother is a conveyancing practitioner. I hope that I will receive preferential fee for conveyancing, However if that does not come materialise, what kind of costs would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Formby?

You should contrast pricing. Make use of our comparison tool on this page. Whilst fees may contrast greatly but the service one can expect are distinct between conveyancers as is the case with the vast majority of professional services.

I am considering applying for a TSB mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Formby with 60% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for TSB ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the TSB conveyancing panel, but TSB would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Formby concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Formby differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Formby approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Formby usually purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Formby or who has acted in the same development.

All being well we will complete our sale of a £200,000 apartment in Formby in seven days. The managing agents has quoted £372 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and previous years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Formby?

Formby conveyancing on leasehold apartments more often than not requires the purchaser’s solicitor sending enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer these enquiries most will be content to assist. They are entitled to charge a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some cases it exceeds £800. The administration charge demanded by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in respect of administration charges, otherwise the invoice is technically not due. In reality you have little choice but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to sell the property.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Formby - Sample of Questions you should ask Prior to buying

    Does the lease include onerous restrictions? How is the lease structured?

I need to change lawyers as my Formby lawyer is not on the bank's approved list of conveyancing solicitors. Is it advisable to appoint a new law firm?

In the event that you have not formally instructed a conveyancer to commence the conveyancing and have just received an estimate as to costs, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Formby that you're considering.
