Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Frizington

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Frizington. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my solicitor? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Frizington?

On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Frizington. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the owner’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be called to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.

is it true that all Frizington solicitor firms on the Santander conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Santander conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

We were going to get a OIP from Aldermore this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Aldermore recommend any Frizington solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Frizington solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Aldermore through the process.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Frizington. 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.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Frizington

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. 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.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Frizington ahead of instructing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks may not give a loan on this type of premises.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Frizington.

We're FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the property agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we appoint the agent's preferred lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Frizington

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Frizington conveyancing firm - as opposed tothe ones that will give their estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by senior management.

I work for a long established estate agency in Frizington where we see a number of flat sales jeopardised due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Frizington conveyancing solicitors. Could you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
