Are you able to vouch for a The Royal Bank of Scotland allowed Headingley conveyancing firm who can have us moved in within a short deadline? Would it be better to use a high street Headingley solicitor or a national conveyancer?
We can recommend some very good Headingley conveyancing firms. You can also walk up the high street in Headingley. Visit a couple of law practices and ask to see a conveyancing solicitor for a costs illustration. Explain your expectations together with the reasons and ask for a commitment on your deadline. Appoint the lawyer that appears most efficient.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as UBS, do Headingley property lawyers incur a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
We previously selected conveyancing lawyers located in Headingley on the Nationwide solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a separate fee for the legal aspects of the Nationwide mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Nationwide?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by Nationwide but by your Headingley solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Nationwide panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.
It is not clear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Headingley building society branch on numerous occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Headingley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?
Your property lawyer has to follow the CML Handbook Part 2 conditions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender 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.
It has been three months since my purchase conveyancing in Headingley completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Headingley. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Headingley
Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Headingley I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Headingley in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
