Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hampden Pk

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the Kent Reliance Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Hampden Pk?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

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

Do not opt for the lowest Hampden Pk conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying 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 know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Hampden Pk. Conveyancing is required. What happens now?

Now that you have to all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you should retain a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of priority as you now have a fast approaching a fixed date to complete the deal. An auction property will have a corresponding auction set of papers. This will include evidence of title and search results. In the case of leasehold premises the conveyancing pack may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork specific to leasehold premises.

We are getting the release of further monies on our home loan from Skipton as we wish to conduct renovations to our home in Hampden Pk. Are we obliged to select a nearby Hampden Pk solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

Skipton do not ordinarily appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Skipton conveyancing panel.

Me and my brother own a semi-detached Georgian house in Hampden Pk. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Hampden Pk and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.

How does conveyancing in Hampden Pk differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Hampden Pk come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Hampden Pk typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hampden Pk or who has acted in the same development.

I work for a busy estate agent office in Hampden Pk where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Hampden Pk conveyancing firms. Can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

I invested in buying a 2 bed flat in Hampden Pk, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Hampden Pk with over 90 years remaining are worth £192,000. The ground rent is £55 per annum. The lease runs out on 21st October 2078

With 54 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £32,300 and £37,400 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.

My intention is to acquire a garden flat in Hampden Pk. Conveyancing solicitor has been waiting for, from the seller, building insurance schedule. This morning I was informed that the seller must send the insurance paperwork for the flat above as well. Why does my solicitor need to check the insurance for the other flat? Is it strictly necessary? We have been in hold for the previous 4 weeks…

It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Hampden Pk to find Conveyancing in Hampden Pk in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats rather than the landlord insuring the complete premises - which is definitely better. You should double check with your solicitor but it would seem that your lawyer is attempting to verify that the entire building is insured. Insuring your flat is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the other flat cannot be reinstated for lack of insurance cover.
