Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Longford

I selected a Longford based firm for our conveyancing in Longford last week. Reviewing the official terms of business I seewe are on the hook for fees even if our purchase doesn't happen. Would I be best advised to use an on-line lawyer advertising no completion no cost conveyancing in Longford?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to counteract the conveyances that abort. Do bear in mind that these arrangements generally do not cover expenditure for instance Longford conveyancing search costs.

AssumingI was to buy a straightforward propertyin Longford mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Longford?

The only saving you would make on is the Longford conveyancing searches. Your solicitor is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with your sellers conveyancer, SDLT submission, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a charge but it won't be significant.

Can I be sure that the Longford conveyancing solicitor on the Nottingham panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Longford seeking recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.

My husband and I are in the throws of looking at apartments in Longford and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it wise to have a conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance.

You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the EA. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Kent Reliance, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.

After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Longford accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Longford. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with TSB?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Longford conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your lawyer is on the TSB approved list. Concerning the next stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some home buyers will apply for the mortgage with TSB and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to proceed with searches.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Longford. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Longford

    Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

My cousin has encouraged me to appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Longford. Should I find my own solicitor?

No doubt the best way to find a conveyancing lawyer is to get recommendations from friends or relatives who have previously instructed the conveyancer you're are thinking of instructing.

I am hoping to put an offer on a small detached house that seems to tick a lot of boxes, at a great price which is making it all the more appealing. I have just been informed that the title is leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a leasehold house in Longford. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been instructed. Will they explain the issues?

The majority of houses in Longford are freehold rather than leasehold. This is one of the situations where having a local solicitor used to dealing with such properties who can assist with the conveyancing process. It is clear that you are purchasing in Longford so you should seriously consider shopping around for a Longford conveyancing practitioner and check that they are used to transacting on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the number of years remaining. As a leaseholder you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want to the property. The lease will likely included provisions for example obtaining the landlord’sconsent to carry out alterations. You may also be required to pay a contribution towards the maintenance of the estate where the property is part of an estate. Your conveyancer should advise you fully on all the issues.

Notwithstanding our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in trying to purchase the freehold in Longford. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Where there is a absentee landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to calculate the price payable.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Longford residence is 164 Nestles Avenue in October 2013. The tribunal agreed with the proposed price of £20,158 for the freehold and determined that that sum is the amount to be paid into court This case related to 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 69 years.
