Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Glossop

I am not in a position to travel far from Glossop. I would like to know the logic why all Glossop property lawyers aren't included on all lender panels?

Lenders normally impose restrictions on either the nature or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. A common example of such criteria being that a practice must have at least two partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some banks decided to reduce the number of organisations they use to act for them. You should note that mortgage companies have no liability for the standard of service supplied by any Glossop solicitor on their panel. Increases in mortgage fraud was a key driver in the culling of conveyancing panels from 2008 even though there are conflicting points of view about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from HM Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only transact a couple of conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel consolidation ask why law firms deserve claim to remain on a bank panel when clearly conveyancing is not their primary expertise?

If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Glossop what would it be?

Do not opt for the cheapest Glossop conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Glossop building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Glossop conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

The property lawyer has to follow the CML Handbook section two requirements for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Glossop. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £200. A few days later, the conveyancer called me to say that they were not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Kent Reliance panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that may affect a commercial estate in Glossop?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Glossop will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Glossop. The search result provides definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Glossop.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Glossop it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

These searches are not carried out for residential conveyancing in Glossop.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Glossop

    Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. 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.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Glossop before retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will not grant a loan on such a house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Glossop. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Glossop to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

I have just started marketing my basement flat in Glossop. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently received a quarterly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

It best that you discharge the service charge as usual as all rents and service invoices will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

    Many Glossop leasehold flats will incur a service charge for the upkeep of the block invoiced on behalf of the management company. Where you acquire the flat you will have to meet this liability, usually quarterly throughout the year. This can differ from two or three hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large common areas. In all probability there will be a ground rent to be met annual, this is usually not a exorbitant figure, say about £50-£100 but you should to check as on occasion it could be many hundreds of pounds. What is the annual service fee and ground rent? This question is useful as a) areas may result in problems in the block as the common areas may start to deteriorate if repairs remain unpaid b) if the leasehold owners have a dispute with the running of the building you will wish to know about it
