Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Levenshulme

My apartment in Levenshulme is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Will the conveyancing practitioner need to be required to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Barclays conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently currently.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Levenshulme. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Skipton be concerned?

Given that your lender is Skipton your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions set out in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Skipton. The CML Handbook contains minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Skipton where a lease fails to meet these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Levenshulme.

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Levenshulme building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Levenshulme conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend based on their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

The conveyancer has to follow the CML Handbook section two specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Skipton have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a apartment in Levenshulme has been agreed to, what are the next steps?

The estate agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the property lawyers are on the bank’s approved list). Telephone Skipton or your broker and complete any relevant documentation. Skipton will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or seller to book a time for the valuation to happen. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Skipton will send the offer to you and your conveyancers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Levenshulme.

I have recentlyfound out that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Levenshulme for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

What are your top tips when it comes to appointing a Levenshulme conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Levenshulme conveyancing practice) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you make enquires with two or three firms including non Levenshulme conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be helpful:

    How many lease extensions has the firm completed in Levenshulme in the last year?

I own a basement flat in Levenshulme, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Levenshulme with an extended lease are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2087

With just 63 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £16,200 and £18,600 plus costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other 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 based on this information before getting professional advice.
