Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Heathfield

I am considering applying for a Nottingham mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Heathfield with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Nottingham ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Nottingham will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

What will a local search tell me concerning the house my wife and I buying in Heathfield?

Heathfield conveyancing often starts with the submitting local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search organisations such as Searches UK The local search plays an important role in most Heathfield conveyancing purchase; as long as you wish to avoid any nasty surprises after you move into your new home. The search will supply information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant 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 thirteen topic headings.

I have justdiscovered that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Heathfield for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest way to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Heathfield conveyancing specialists.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Heathfield benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my conveyancer about this deal as it would adversely affect my loan with Lloyds TSB Bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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 was recommended by a couple of local property agents in Heathfield to locate a property lawyer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to market your services over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t offer any referral fee for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

In relation to leasehold conveyancing in Heathfield what are the most frequent lease defects?

Leasehold conveyancing in Heathfield is not unique. Most leases are individual and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain sections are not included. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the property

You could encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. HSBC Bank, Bank of Scotland, and Nottingham Building Society all have express conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to pull out.

I purchased a ground floor flat in Heathfield, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar flats in Heathfield with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2089

With 65 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £13,300 and £15,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
