Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kempston

Is there a list of Aldermore panel conveyancers in Kempston on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few banks make their panel listings viewable over the internet. Where you are looking for a Kempston property lawyer on the Aldermore please make the most of our tool.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Kent Reliance. Is it usual for Kent Reliance to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Kempston is approved on their conveyancing panel? Kent Reliance have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Kent Reliance to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Kempston agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Kempston. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Principality going?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Kempston conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Principality approved list. As to the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Principality and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with searches.

I'm buying my first flat in Kempston with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not to tell my conveyancer about this side-deal as it may jeopardize my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Kempston is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Kempston are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Kempston you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kempston may decide 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 property.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for residential conveyancing in Kempston. I have stumble upon a site which appears to be the ideal offering If there is a chance to get all formalities done via email that would be preferable. Do I need to be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?

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?

Looking forward to exchange soon on a basement flat in Kempston. Conveyancing solicitors assured me that they report fully on Monday. What should I be looking out for?

The report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Kempston should include some of the following:

    The landlord’s rights to access the flat. You should be made aware that your landlord has rights of access as well as be informed how much notice must be provided. Who has the liability to repair and maintain the block. It is essential that you know which party is duty bound to repair and maintenance of all parts of the block and estate How long the lease is. You should be advised as what happens when the lease expires, and informed of the importance of the 80 year mark Does the lease prohibit wood flooring? Setting out your legal entitlements in relation to common areas in the block.For example, does the lease permit a right of way over a path or staircase?
For a comprehensive list of information to be included in your report on your leasehold property in Kempston please ask your conveyancer in ahead of your conveyancing in Kempston.

I inherited a ground floor flat in Kempston, conveyancing was carried out February 2008. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in Kempston with a long lease are worth £192,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2076

With only 54 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £32,300 and £37,400 plus costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

The property lawyers carrying out our conveyancing in Kempston has sent papers to review that reveal that the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Why is the property not currently recorded at the Land Registry?

Much of the property in Kempston is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Many Kempston conveyancing lawyers should be able to handle this type of conveyancing but if any uncertainty reigns the usual guidance these days is for the vendor’s solicitor to deal with the registration formalities first and then sell - this will have a domino effect to cause a significant delay.
