Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Heckington

Me and my partner are buying a 1 bedroom apartment in Heckington with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Heckington conveyancer, however the bank advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or retain our Heckington solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This feels very unfair; are we not able to demand that the mortgage company use our Heckington property lawyer ?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Heckington conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (seven years built) in Heckington. The vast majority the appartments have already been disposed of. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Heckington?

You are taking a significant risk in not carrying out Heckington conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would strongly advise in the strongest possible terms that you have them. If time pressures and cost are primary concerns you should discuss with your solicitor about the viability of search insurance

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Heckington costs more?

The conveyancing fees on a leasehold property in Heckington is inevitably more expensive when contrasted to a freehold acquisition or disposal. This is because there is an amount of supplemental work necessary in dealing with the landlord and management company to obtain evidence concerning whether the rent and service fee have been cleared and whether there are any significant expenditure in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the block.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Heckington. Conveyancing is daunting 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.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Heckington. Conveyancing and Britannia mortgage are in place.

The conveyancing solicitor in Heckington who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

First contact HMLR to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. There is no need to incur the fees of a Heckington conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I inherited a 2 bed flat in Heckington, conveyancing was carried out 5 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in Heckington with an extended lease are worth £175,000. The ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2082

With just 58 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £23,800 and £27,400 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
