Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hathern

At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Hathern and do I need to be at the lawyers office?

Where you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Hathern you are invited in to sign documents. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply a nationwide conveyancing service and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to exchange contracts at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Hathern)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I am helping my sister sell her flat in Hathern. Does the solicitor arrange the EPC or it is for the seller to coordinate?

After the demise of HIPs, EPC’s was maintained a compulsory component of moving house. An energy assessment needs to be commissioned before the property is put on the market. This is not something that solicitors ordinarily organise. Where you are instructing a Hathern conveyancing solicitor they might be willing to arrange energy assessments due to their contacts with reputable Hathern energy assessors

How can we know in advance if a Hathern conveyancing solicitor on the Bank of Ireland panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Hathern getting recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.

At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Hathern agreed to, the sellers do however have a connected purchase. The sellers have offered on a property, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Hathern. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with RBS?

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Hathern conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your property lawyer is on the RBS approved list. As to the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers would apply for a home loan with RBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their lawyer to proceed with searches.

I am selling our house in Hathern and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Hathern conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used an internet conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Hathern. We have lived in Hathern for three years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? 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 sickness)

Me and my brother purchased a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Hathern. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Coventry Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should read 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 Hathern and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage 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 carried out the work.

How does conveyancing in Hathern differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Hathern come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because developers in Hathern typically buy the site, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Hathern or who has acted in the same development.

I own a leasehold flat in Hathern. Conveyancing and Birmingham Midshires mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing practitioner in Hathern who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

First contact the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder. You do not need to incur the fees of a Hathern conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I am the registered owner of a studio flat in Hathern, conveyancing was carried out in 2012. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Hathern with over 90 years remaining are worth £165,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2100

With just 78 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £7,600 and £8,800 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
