Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Gamston

I am acquiring a leasehold flat in Gamston. My lawyer is not listed on the lender conveyancing list. Am I still permitted to retain my Gamston conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the mortgage company panel?

You must have a solicitor to deal with the legal work required when you require a loan to purchase your home. They will carry out all the necessary investigations on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is in place. One may instruct a Gamston conveyancing practitioner of your choice. However, where the lawyer appointed is not a member of the lender conveyancing panel additional fees will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so provided your lawyer has not previously applied for membership they should do so.

This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Gamston. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Gamston?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

Does a directory service exist listing Virgin Money panel conveyancers in Gamston on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

We previously appointed conveyancers locally in Gamston on the Nottingham solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a separate sum for dealing with the Nottingham mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Nottingham?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your lawyer may charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Nottingham but by your Gamston lawyer. Numerous firms on the Nottingham panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Gamston I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Gamston in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan that many years may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business premises in Gamston and how can your lawyers assist?

The particular law that you refer to gives security of tenure to business tenants, granting the a statutory right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act for protection and assist with commercial conveyancing in Gamston

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am selling a property in Neath but live in Gamston. My lawyer (who is 250 kilometers awayhas requested that I execute a statutory declaration prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Gamston who can attest and place their company stamp on the document?

strictly speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Gamston based

I am employed by a long established estate agency in Gamston where we see a number of flat sales derailed as a result of short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Gamston conveyancing firms. Could you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has been the owner 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 buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

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.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Gamston - Sample of Questions you should consider before Purchasing

    It is important to be aware if redecorating or some other significant cost is pending that will be shared by the leasehold owners and will materially impact the level of the maintenance fees or result in a one off invoice. Who are the managing agents? You should be aware that where the lease has less than eighty years it will impact the salability of the property. It is worth checking with your bank that they are content with residual term of the lease. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely have to extend the lease sooner rather than later and it is worth finding out what this will be. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the premises for a couple of years before you are legally able to extend the lease.
