Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Loughborough

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Loughborough is not on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of his work?

That is more than likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Loughborough conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

My nephew is buying a newly built flat in Loughborough with a home loan from Co-operative. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Co-operative conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to finding a Loughborough conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a conveyancer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Loughborough conveyancing practice) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you make enquires with several firms including non Loughborough conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be helpful:

    What volume of lease extensions has the firm carried out in Loughborough in the last year?

Loughborough Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should ask before Purchasing

    Best to be warned whether a new roof is being put on or some other major work is coming up that will be shared by the tenants and may well dramatically impact the level of the service fees or necessitate a one time invoice. Make sure you investigate if there is anything that is prohibited in the lease. For example it is reasonably common in Loughborough leases that pets are not allowed in certain buildings in Loughborough. If you love the apartmentin Loughborough however your dog is not allowed to live with you then you will be presented with a hard compromise. How much is the maintenance charge and ground rent on the property?

As a leasehold owner I am liable for a maintenance contribution for my property in Loughborough. As a result of personal circumstances I slipped behind with payments. I negotiated a clearance schedule but there is still three thousand pounds currently due.

I now wish to dispose of the property and I am concerned this will hold me back if I have to pay off the amount due in advance. Do I have to settle before - is this possible?

Do check with the lawyer dealing with your Loughborough conveyancing but one option might be to arrange for the debt to be attributed to the purchasers. The purchase price due would be reduced to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They could then discharge the outstanding monies once they are the owners.
