My mortgage broker has asked me for my Hornsea solicitor’s panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have called my local Hornsea branch but they have not responded to me.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Hornsea lawyer . Most Hornsea law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.
five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Hornsea concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
How does conveyancing in Hornsea differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Hornsea contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because developers in Hornsea tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Hornsea or who has acted in the same development.

I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agent office in Hornsea where we see a number of leasehold sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have received inconsistent advice from local Hornsea conveyancing firms. Can you shed some light as to whether the vendor of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

The prefered form of lease arrangement is where the freehold reversion is in the ownership of the leaseholders. In this situation the tenants enjoy control and although a managing agent is usually retained if the building is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves. How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their service charge payments? Is the freehold reversion owned jointly by the leaseholders?
