Do the conveyancing lawyers via your comparison service carry out attended exchange conveyancing in Heysham?

There are a few conveyancing experts carrying out personalised exchanges. Do e-mail us to obtain a fee calculation and details as to dates.

My wife and I are intent on selling our home in Heysham and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Heysham. Having lived in Heysham for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You must enquire of 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 illness)

I'm buying my first flat in Heysham with a mortgage from Coventry Building Society. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my solicitor about this extras as it will put at risk my mortgage with the lender. 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 am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Heysham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Heysham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

How do I use your search app to find a conveyancing solicitor in Heysham on the panel for my lender?

Step one is to select a bank such as Barclays , The Mortgage Works or Nottingham Building Society then type in your location for instance Heysham. Conveyancing practices in Heysham and beyond will then be listed.

What advice can you give us when it comes to finding a Heysham conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a property lawyer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Heysham conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We recommend that you make enquires with two or three firms including non Heysham conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be useful:

    How experienced is the firm with lease extension legislation? What are the charges for lease extension conveyancing?

I acquired a 2 bed flat in Heysham, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding properties in Heysham with over 90 years remaining are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2088

With just 68 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
