Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Liskeard

IfI were to acquire a freehold housein Liskeard mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Liskeard?

Any savings you would make would be isolated to the Liskeard conveyancing searches. Your solicitor still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the vendors solicitor, SDLT submission, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage however it will not be significant.

I am being advised by my solicitor that missing deeds insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Liskeard?

The appropriate level of missing deeds indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Birmingham Midshires and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Yorkshire BS are being a right pain. The Liskeard solicitor who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Yorkshire BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Yorkshire BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Yorkshire BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Yorkshire BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

About to purchase maisonette in Liskeard. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Liskeard conveyancing practitioner is on the UBS conveyancing panel.

I have been told that property searches are a common cause of hinderance in Liskeard house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Liskeard.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Liskeard I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Liskeard for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

All being well we will complete our sale of a £350,000 garden flat in Liskeard in just under a week. The landlords agents has quoted £420 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Liskeard?

Liskeard conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes normally necessitates fees being levied by freeholders :

    Answering pre-exchange questions Where consent is required before sale in Liskeard Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Liskeard leasehold premises is £350. For Liskeard 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 required to supply the information.

I own a 2 bed flat in Liskeard, conveyancing having been completed 3 years ago. 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? Similar flats in Liskeard with an extended lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2080

With only 60 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
