Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hurworth

My husband and I are planning to acquire a house in Hurworth and are in fact using a Hurworth conveyancing firm. Within the last couple of days our lawyer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Halifax have this afternoon contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Hurworth conveyancer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Is this a problem?

If you are buying a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is usual for the purchasers' lawyers to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your mortgage company and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Hurworth lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business offices in Hurworth and how can your lawyers assist?

The particular law that you refer to gives a safeguard to business lessees, giving them the a statutory right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end.

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the property agent has warned us that the owners will only go ahead if we use the agent's recommended conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Hurworth

We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to use your preferred Hurworth conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Hurworth. Before diving in I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Hurworth - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I am the registered owner of a split level flat in Hurworth, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Hurworth with a long lease are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2092
