Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kemp Town

I decided to go with a Kemp Town based solicitor for our conveyancing in Kemp Town recently. After carefully reading the Terms I notewe are on the hook for costs even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I go with them or appoint a web based conveyancing company advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Kemp Town?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to counteract those conveyances that fail to complete. Please beware that these arrangements rarely cover outlay e.g. Kemp Town conveyancing search expenses.

In the event thatI were to purchase a simple residential propertyin Kemp Town mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Kemp Town?

Any savings you would achieve will be limited to the costs for searches. The solicitor is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, correspond with your sellers conveyancing practitioner, stamp duty submission, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage however it will not be a lot.

The deeds to our property can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Kemp Town 5 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?

Nowadays there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your lawyer will know precisely where to look for all the relevant paperwork so you may buy or dispose of your property without a hitch. If copies can’t be found, your solicitor may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on the premises.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Kemp Town is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Kemp Town are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Kemp Town you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kemp Town may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Kemp Town. I happened to discover a site which appears to be the perfect offering If it is possible to get all the legals completed via web that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

My husband and I may need to sub-let our Kemp Town basement flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Kemp Town conveyancing practice in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

Even though your previous Kemp Town conveyancing solicitor is not available you can review your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the premises. The rule is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is permitted. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you must seek consent via your landlord or other appropriate person prior to subletting. This means you not allowed to sublet without prior consent. Such consent must not not be unreasonably turned down. If your lease prohibits you from letting out the property you should ask your landlord for their consent.

I invested in buying a split level flat in Kemp Town, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar properties in Kemp Town with over 90 years remaining are worth £186,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 per annum. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2073

You have 52 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £29,500 and £34,000 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
