Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hurst

I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and have to vacate my let out apartment in Hurst by 9/7/2024. Conveyancing for my house purchase is progressing. Can I complete in six weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into short term accommodation?

The normal practice is not to serve notice on a rental unless you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not previously done so, contact to your conveyancer and request that they apply pressure on the other side, try to get a realistic time scale from them that everyone will work to achieve

We previously appointed conveyancers located in Hurst on the RBS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional amount for dealing with the RBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by RBS?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your solicitor may charge a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by RBS but by your Hurst lawyer. Numerous firms on the RBS panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Hurst. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their property lawyer. I paid an on account payment of £225. Soon after, the conveyancing practitioner contacted me to say that they were not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Clydesdale panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Hurst conveyancing practitioner having made sure that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Hurst surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

My friend recommended that if I am buying in Hurst I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about Hurst around the property and the people living there. It includes 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, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Hurst.

The deeds to my house are lost. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Hurst 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?

We expect to complete the disposal of our £325,000 garden flat in Hurst on Monday in a week. The management company has quoted £336 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Hurst?

Hurst conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes normally necessitates the purchaser’s conveyancer submitting enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address such questions most will be content to assist. They are entitled to charge a reasonable administration fee for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some situations it exceeds £800. The management information fee invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that one has little choice but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to sell the property.

I invested in buying a 2 bed flat in Hurst, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding flats in Hurst with over 90 years remaining are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease terminates on 21st October 2098

With only 74 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
