I bought my flat on 6 March and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Leominster expressed confidence that it will be registered inside ten days. Are transfers in Leominster uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Leominster registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any third persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the new owner is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not typically top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm buying my first flat in Leominster with a loan from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it will affect my loan with The Royal Bank of Scotland. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Leominster I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Leominster in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

What does commercial conveyancing in Leominster cover?

Non domestic conveyancing in Leominster covers a wide range of services, supplied by regulated solicitors, relating to business property. By way of example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the assignment of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of leases.

Am I better off to go with a Leominster conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can carry out the legal work however her office is 400miles away.

The benefit of a local Leominster conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign documents, present your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Leominster know how is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and on the whole were happy that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Leominster conveyancing lawyer just because they are round the corner.
