Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Grangetown

My partner’s brother is a solicitor. I suspect that I will be offered friends and family pricing for conveyancing, but if not, what level of fees would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Grangetown?

You should compare pricing. Make use of our comparison tool on this site. Whilst prices seem to contrast greatly but service levels do differ between property lawyers as is true with the vast majority of professional services.

My wife and I have a terraced Edwardian house in Grangetown. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Coventry Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Grangetown and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Grangetown with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my lawyer about this deal as it could impact my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Grangetown I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Grangetown 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 the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

I have been recommended by numerous estate agents in Grangetown to get a quote from a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your site over alternative conveyancing organisations?

We refuse to offer any commission for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

Is there a reason that Grangetown conveyancing costs are higher for leasehold and freehold properties?

If buying a leasehold property there is more work involved purely due to the fact that usually there are further parties involved in the form of the freeholder and/or Management Agents. As part of a lawyers enquiries they will check that all ground rent and service charges are paid up to date amongst other general leasehold matters. For this reason, the Sellers lawyers usually have to refer to the freeholder or Managing Agent for their replies to our questions. This may be time consuming and beyond the lawyers control
