The Gorleston conveyancing firm handling our Gorleston conveyancing has spotted an inconsistency between the information in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My solicitor informs me that he is obliged to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s course or action correct?
Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Gorleston? What am I being asked for?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identification documents of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing retainer. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign should stipulate this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. Where you refuse to hand over ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to accept instructions from you.
What can a local search reveal concerning the property my wife and I buying in Gorleston?

I am hoping to put an offer on a small detached house that appears to be perfect, at a reasonable price which is making it more attractive. I have subsequently been informed that the title is leasehold rather than freehold. I am assuming that there are issues buying a leasehold house in Gorleston. Conveyancing solicitors have not yet been instructed. Will they explain the issues?
Most houses in Gorleston are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can help the conveyancing process. We note that you are buying in Gorleston so you should seriously consider looking for a Gorleston conveyancing practitioner and check that they have experience in dealing with leasehold houses. As a matter of priority you will need to check the unexpired lease term. As a lessee you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions such as obtaining the landlord’spermission to carry out alterations. You may also be required to pay a maintenance charge towards the maintenance of the communal areas where the property is part of an estate. Your lawyer will appraise you on the various issues.
I acquired a 1st floor flat in Gorleston, conveyancing was carried out in 1997. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Gorleston with an extended lease are worth £227,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2095
With just 72 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
Are there any distinct advantages to using a high street lawyer in Gorleston
Home movers in Gorleston choose a local property lawyer so that they can attend the firm’s offices in the event that they have concerns, and to execute paperwork rather than run the risk of depending on the Royal Mail.
Some would allege that there is a slight advantage in using a conveyancing practitioner nearby to the house you are purchasing, due to the in-depth knowledge of the area and possible local issues - nevertheless this is moot. Most conveyancers conduct their communications over the web and could be anywhere in the world.
