Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Heaton Moor

I am hoping to receive a mortgage offer from Lloyds. I intend to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Heaton Moor. Does the Lloyds Solicitor panel include Licensed Conveyancers?

The Lloyds approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

We're in Heaton Moor, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Lloyds , and our lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no property lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

Will our conveyancer be raising enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Heaton Moor.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Heaton Moor. There are those who purchase a house in Heaton Moor, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Heaton Moor. The conventional set of information sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the vendor to discover if the property has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer could bring a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate reply. A purchaser’s solicitors may also carry out an environmental search. This will indicate whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be initiated.

I am buying a new build house in Heaton Moor with a loan from Nationwide Building Society. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about this deal as it may jeopardize my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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 have been recommended by numerous property agents in Heaton Moor to choose a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t give any financial incentive for directing people our way. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I am attracted to a couple of flats in Heaton Moor both have about fifty years remaining on the leases. Will this present a problem?

A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease gets shorter the saleability of the lease deteriorates and results in it becoming more costly to extend the lease. This is why it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We advise that you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this area.

I invested in buying a ground floor flat in Heaton Moor, conveyancing formalities finalised November 2003. How much will my lease extension cost? Comparable properties in Heaton Moor with an extended lease are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2078

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

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more 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. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
