Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Grove

What is the first thing I need to know regarding purchase conveyancing in Grove?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Grove and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, property agent and even potentially the lender. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Grove should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the transaction whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.

On occasion a potential adversary may try and persuade you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Grove. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Grove?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

I have paid off my mortgage with Principality. I assume I don't need a Grove property lawyer on the Principality panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Principality mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Principality mortgage from the register. Principality, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Principality has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Principality has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Principality mortgage has been paid off.

What can a local search reveal regarding the property we're purchasing in Grove?

Grove conveyancing often starts with the submitting local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search organisations for example Searchflow The local search plays a central part in most Grove conveyancing purchase; as long as you don’t want any unpleasant surprises after you move into your property. The search should provide data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject areas.

Is it best to instruct a Grove conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? An old friend can execute the legal formalities however they are based 300kilometers away.

The benefit of a local Grove conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. Having local Grove know how is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who used your friend and on the whole were happy that must trump using an unfamiliar Grove conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being round the corner.

Last November I purchased a leasehold property in Grove. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I am the registered owner of a split level flat in Grove, conveyancing formalities finalised September 2000. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Grove with over 90 years remaining are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease ceases on 21st October 2091

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
