Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kemp Town

Due to move into my new home in Kemp Town next Thursday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the bank. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?

All property lawyers on acting for mortgage companies would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. These requirements are not unique to conveyancing in Kemp Town.

Should lawyers request an advanced payment when it comes to conveyancing in Kemp Town?

If you are buying a property in Kemp Town your solicitor will request that you place them with monies to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. When the deposit is payable against the total price then this should be needed immediately ahead of contracts are exchanged. Any further balance that is due will be payable a couple of days prior to the day of completion.

I have been told that property searches are the main reason for hinderance in Kemp Town conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Kemp Town.

I have recentlydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Kemp Town for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Kemp Town conveyancing specialists.

I am the registered owner of a leasehold flat in Kemp Town, conveyancing having been completed in 2010. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Kemp Town with over 90 years remaining are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2097
