Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kelsall

Is it realistic for conveyancing in Kelsall to be concluded inside 28 days?

In a situation where the seller is applying pressure for your conveyancing we would recommend that your solicitor is familiar with the location as they will have local connections and knowledge. It is possible that they could have transacted previoushomes in the same road. Therefore consider using a Kelsall conveyancing firm. Second, double check that the conveyancing firm is on the member panel. It is claimed that nearly one in five of Kelsall conveyancing deals are frustrated or jeopardised after discovering a purchaser’s conveyancer was not on their banks panel. This can often result in the buying process being held up by an average of 21 days. It is claimed that this issue affects approximately one hundred thousand home moves every year. Many Kelsall conveyancing firms can not act for certain banks so do check as early as possible.

I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance for my purchase of a house in Kelsall. My lender is Bank of Ireland

Bank of Ireland have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 2/12/2023, the requirements read as follows :

We are getting a further advance on our home loan from Bank of Ireland as we want to conduct renovations to our house in Kelsall. Are we obliged to choose a nearby Kelsall solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?

Bank of Ireland would not normally instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Bank of Ireland panel.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Kent Reliance. I assume I don't need a Kelsall conveyancer on the Kent Reliance panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Kent Reliance mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Kent Reliance mortgage from the register. Kent Reliance, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Kent Reliance has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Kent Reliance has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Kent Reliance mortgage has been paid off.

After what seems like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Kelsall accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Kelsall. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Kelsall conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancer is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Kelsall.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Kelsall I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Kelsall in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

My partner has encouraged me to instruct his conveyancers in Kelsall. Should I choose my own solicitor?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Kelsall conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to find a conveyancing lawyer is to get feedback from friends or family who have experience in using the solicitor you're contemplating using.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Kelsall. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Kelsall - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars 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 inherited a split level flat in Kelsall, conveyancing was carried out May 1997. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar flats in Kelsall with a long lease are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease expires on 21st October 2098

You have 75 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
