Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ladywood

Why would I appoint a Ladywood conveyancing firm when internet based alternatives are so much cheaper?

By all means make sure that you compare conveyancing costs in Ladywood and you should seek a competitive quote but don’t waste your energy hunting for the lowest priced Ladywood conveyancer. Finding the right conveyancer can be the difference between a smooth and a frustrating home move. You need to ensure that you have expert advice from an experienced solicitor.

We are buying a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Ladywood who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Nationwide . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Ladywood.

We are buying a property in Ladywood. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? On completion day we will need to deposit money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

My wife and I have organised the release of further monies on our mortgage from Co-operative as we intend to conduct improvements to our house in Ladywood. Are we obliged to choose a bricks and mortar Ladywood solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?

Co-operative don't usually appoint 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 Co-operative conveyancing panel.

I have a mortgage with Clydesdale for my property in Ladywood. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Clydesdale?

Clydesdale must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Clydesdale’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Clydesdale directly. You need not do this via a Clydesdale conveyancing panel lawyer.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Ladywood I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Ladywood for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

Is it best to instruct a Ladywood conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? An old friend can handle the conveyancing but his firm is located a couple of hundredkilometers away.

The primary upside of using a local Ladywood conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign documents, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. Having local Ladywood know how is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and on the whole were content that should surpass using an unfamiliar Ladywood conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.

All being well we will complete the disposal of our £375,000 apartment in Ladywood next week. The freeholder has quoted £312 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Ladywood?

Ladywood conveyancing on leasehold apartments ordinarily involves fees being invoiced by freeholders :

    Answering pre-exchange enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Ladywood Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Ladywood leasehold premises is £350. For Ladywood conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to supply answers.

I invested in buying a 1st floor flat in Ladywood, conveyancing having been completed 8 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding flats in Ladywood with a long lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2080

You have 59 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £20,900 and £24,200 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
