Recently asked questions about conveyancing in High Wycombe

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in High Wycombe is not listed on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should simply call the High Wycombe conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in High Wycombe is more expensive?

The conveyancing charges on a leasehold premises in High Wycombe is inevitably greater as compared to a freehold transaction. This is due to the supplemental time required in communicating with the freeholder and managing agents to obtain evidence about whether the rent and service charges have been discharged and whether there are any significant expenditure in the near future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

A colleague suggested that where I am buying in High Wycombe I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is usually quoted for as part of the standard High Wycombe conveyancing searches. It is a large document of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about High Wycombe around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, High Wycombe Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding High Wycombe.

I have justfound out that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in High Wycombe for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest way to see if the property is in your name, you can make 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 High Wycombe conveyancing specialists.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. High Wycombe is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in High Wycombe are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside High Wycombe you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in High Wycombe may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

I invested in buying a split level flat in High Wycombe, conveyancing having been completed December 1999. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar properties in High Wycombe with a long lease are worth £171,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2103

With just 79 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £7,600 and £8,800 plus costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence.
