I am buying a property without a mortgage in Leeswood. I have resided for the last dozen years in Leeswood. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

If you not getting a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Leeswood conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she is duty bound to take that path of guidance. Do take into account; if you are intend to sell the house in the future, it will be of importance to your prospective purchaser what the searches contain.

We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Leeswood for our house purchase. Our financial adviser has since advised us that our mortgage lenders Leeds Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?

Banks ordinarily imposes restrictions either the type or the number of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must not be a sole practitioner. In addition to restricting the type of firm, a few banks have limited the number of solicitor practices they use to represent them. Be aware that Leeds Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Leeds Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the reduction of conveyancing panels since 2008 even though there are mixed opinions regarding the extent of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud. Data from the Land Registry indicate that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Leeswood only carry out a couple conveyances per annum.

I understand that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I need this when buying a property in Leeswood? or Apparently there is an ancient law that could mean that homeowners living in a parish church boundary will be compelled to pay for maintenance towards the chancel within the church. Is this a legitimate concern for conveyancing in Leeswood?

Unless a prior acquisition of the property completed after 12 October 2013 you could expect lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Leeswood to remain encouraging a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Leeswood with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my conveyancer about the deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Leeswood. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Leeswood - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I purchased a basement flat in Leeswood, conveyancing formalities finalised February 2002. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding flats in Leeswood with a long lease are worth £186,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2072

With only 52 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £29,500 and £34,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above 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 this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
