My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Harehills. Conveyancing is necessary. What happens now?

Given that you have now legally committed yourself to purchase you should find a conveyancing practitioner soon as you will have a fast approaching deadline in which to complete the property. All auction property will ordinarily have a bespoke legal pack. This will include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold property the conveyancing papers should contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation pertinent to leasehold premises. You should pass this on to the conveyancer working for you at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that your finances are in place to complete on the date specified in the contract.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Harehills. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.

I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Harehills building society branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Harehills conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Your conveyancer must follow the CML Handbook section two conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Harehills and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Harehills lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a nationwide conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Harehills. Having lived in Harehills for six years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

I am buying my first flat in Harehills benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about this deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with Godiva Mortgages Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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’m about to sell my garden flat in Harehills. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just received a half-yearly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the invoice as usual given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice 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.

I am the registered owner of a garden flat in Harehills, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension?

With only 65 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £13,300 and £15,400 as well as professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
