We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from UBS as we want to conduct a loft conversion to our property in Linslade. Are we obliged to select a bricks and mortar Linslade solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
UBS do not ordinarily instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the UBS conveyancing panel.
I have paid off my mortgage with Yorkshire BS. I assume I don't need a Linslade solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Yorkshire BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Yorkshire BS mortgage from the register. Yorkshire BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Yorkshire BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Yorkshire BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so

2 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Linslade took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I'm buying a new build house in Linslade benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent told me not inform my solicitor about this deal as it will jeopardize my loan with Aldermore. 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.
Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Linslade with the aim of expediting the sale process?
- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Linslade can be bypassed where you instruct lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ lawyers. If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where there is a current dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over rather than unresolved. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should ensure that you are holding the original share document. Organising a replacement share certificate is often a time consuming process and delays many a Linslade conveyancing deal. Where a reissued share is needed, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (where applicable) for this sooner rather than later. The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Linslade charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should discover the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack sought on or before finding a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Linslade.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
