Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Holt

My husband and I are acquiring a newly built apartment in Holt and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the bank to reveal incentives from the builder. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange and I don't want to delay matters. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Holt. Do I collect the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Holt?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

The mortgage over my property is with Coventry BS for my property in Holt. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Coventry BS?

You must advise Coventry BS in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel firm.

My offer was accepted on a house in Holt on 25/4/2024, valuation was booked five days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Coventry BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Various internet forums that I have frequented warn that are a common reason for hinderance in Holt house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Holt.

What does commercial conveyancing in Holt cover?

Holt conveyancing for business premises covers a wide array of guidance, provided by regulated solicitors, relating to business property. By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the transfer of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of leases.

I only have Fifty years remaining on my lease in Holt. I now want to extend my lease but my freeholder is absent. What should I do?

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the magistrate. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to find the landlord. For most situations a specialist may be helpful to carry out a search and to produce an expert document to be accepted by the court as proof that the freeholder can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer in relation to investigating the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Holt.

I inherited a basement flat in Holt, conveyancing was carried out 10 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding properties in Holt with an extended lease are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2090

With only 66 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £11,400 and £13,200 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

My father-in-law mentioned that when selecting a conveyancing lawyer they need approved by your lender. I am novice purchaser but I have an offer in principle with Virgin Money and I already have a bricks and morter conveyancing lawyer in Holt lined up. Will HSBC insist on an approved conveyancer to be instructed? Does a list of approved solicitors even exist so I can choose a conveyancing solicitor in Holt?

You should choose a solicitor that is on the HSBC panel. Just ring your preferred Holt conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the HSBC panel. If they are not on the panel you have a couple of choices available to you here:

  • Proceed with your existing Holt lawyer but HSBC will undoubtedly retain a conveyancer from their approved list. This will result in additional charges together with likely interruption.
  • Choose a new conveyancer to act in the purchase, not forgetting to check that they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your solicitor to pull out all the stops to get listed on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
