Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hemsworth

Would the conveyancing lawyers identified via your search tool carry out auction conveyancing in Hemsworth?

We know of a number of niche practitioners we can connect you with those conducting auction conveyancing. Hemsworth is one of the many locations in which our lawyers have a presence.

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a first time buyer of a garden flat in Hemsworth. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Hemsworth?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Hemsworth. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be invited to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

We previously appointed solicitors locally in Hemsworth on the Yorkshire BS solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional sum for handling the Yorkshire BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Yorkshire BS?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Yorkshire BS but by your Hemsworth solicitor. Some firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but many firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Nottingham are being difficult. The Hemsworth solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Nottingham are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Nottingham have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nottingham may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Hemsworth and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Hemsworth. We have lived in Hemsworth for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You must check with 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)

Should I choose a Hemsworth conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can conduct the legal formalities but his firm is located over three hundred miles drive away.

The benefit of a high street Hemsworth conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, hand in your ID and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust instructed your friend and the majority were impressed that must surpass using an unfamiliar Hemsworth conveyancing lawyer just because they are Hemsworth based.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Hemsworth from the point of view of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Hemsworth can be bypassed where you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information needed by the purchasers’ solicitors.
  • If you have had conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is very important that these are settled before the property is marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where there is an ongoing dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as historic as opposed to unresolved. A minority of Hemsworth leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are able to meet the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Hemsworth levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold premises. You or your lawyers should discover the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most common reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Hemsworth.

I invested in buying a 1 bedroom flat in Hemsworth, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Hemsworth with a long lease are worth £222,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2095

You have 71 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide 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 other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

Living abroad I am unable to travel my Hemsworth conveyancing solicitors office to execute documents for conveyancing in Hemsworth – is this a problem?

You need not be concerned. Hemsworth conveyancing lawyers can undertake conveyancing transactions for clients who are based anywhere. You are unlikely to be required to meet your lawyer in the flesh at a Hemsworth conveyancers office. Almost all property lawyer can undertake all communications via phone, post and email - whatever works for you.
