Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Horncastle

I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (five years built) in Horncastle. 95% of the properties are already sold. Is it really necessary to order neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Horncastle?

You are opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in refusing to carrying out Horncastle 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 mortgage free there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would seriously advise in no uncertain terms that you have them. Where speed and price are primary concerns you should discuss with your lawyer about the options such as contingency insurance available to you

My Conveyancer in Horncastle is not on the Accord Mortgages Ltd Approved Panel. Can I still continue with my prefered solicitor even though they are not on the Accord Mortgages Ltd panel?

Your options are as follows:

  1. Complete the purchase with your existing Horncastle lawyers but Accord Mortgages Ltd will need to instruct a conveyancer on their list of acceptable firms. This will result in additional overall conveyancing fees as well as cause frustration.
  2. Get a new solicitor to act in the conveyancing, not forgetting to check they are on the Accord Mortgages Ltd panel

There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Horncastle but how do I know who's good?

Do not opt for the lowest Horncastle conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors.

I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Horncastle on 4/8/2020, valuation was booked five days after, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to HSBC and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

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

I’m about to sell my garden flat in Horncastle. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just had a yearly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the invoice as you normally would because all rents and maintenance payments will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I bought a 2 bed flat in Horncastle, conveyancing having been completed 8 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 Horncastle with over 90 years remaining are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2082

With just 62 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £17,100 and £19,800 plus costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
