Discuss your deadline together with your reasons and ask for an assurance on your deadline. Select the one that you trust.

Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Glossop is more expensive?

The conveyancing costs for a leasehold premises in Glossop is inevitably greater when contrasted to a freehold acquisition or disposal. This is because there is an amount of extra work necessary in dealing with the landlord and management company to collate the evidence concerning whether the rent and service charges have been discharged and whether there are any significant expenditure in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

I am buying a 3 bedroom semi in Glossop. Our aim is to an extension at the rear at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to determine if these works are allowed?

Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Glossop will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent categories of alterations or need the consent of another owner. Certain works need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Glossop. I have a mortgage offer with Bank of Ireland. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.

RBS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a apartment in Glossop has been agreed to, what happens next?

The property agent will need to be advised as to your conveyancer's details (ensure that the lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Contact RBS or your financial adviser and finish off any relevant paperwork. RBS will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to schedule a slot for the valuation to take place. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. RBS will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Glossop.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Glossop I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Glossop for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

I am looking at a couple of apartments in Glossop both have about fifty years left on the leases. Will this present a problem?

There are plenty of short leases in Glossop. The lease is a right to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As a lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease decreases and it becomes more expensive to extend the lease. This is why it is often a good idea to extend the lease term. Sometimes it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We recommend you seek professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this area.

I own a garden flat in Glossop, conveyancing formalities finalised January 2002. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Glossop with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2086

With just 64 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £14,300 and £16,400 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

I need to review quotes for conveyancing in Glossop from three conveyancing practitioner and appoint one. Do I get them to hold tight until I have found somewhere to acquire.

We suggest that you wait to request your lawyer to open a file and order searches once the offer has been agreed to on the property especially as Glossop conveyancing searches are a couple of hundred pounds.
