Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kings Heath

Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Kings Heath conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel?

Kings Heath conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Clydesdale directly.

What happens if my solicitor is suspended from the Clydesdale Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Kings Heath?

First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Kings Heath will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers expend in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Kings Heath.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Kings Heath it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

Are there common problems that you see in leases for Kings Heath properties?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Kings Heath. All leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    A provision to repair to or maintain parts of the property Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.

You will encounter difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. HSBC Bank, Bank of Scotland, and Britannia all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the purchaser to pull out.

Corresponding properties in Kings Heath with a long lease are worth £191,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2075

You have 53 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £27,600 and £31,800 plus legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.
