Me and my partner are acquiring our first property. Our conveyancing practitioner has calledto see if we want to take out extra conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's relevant for conveyancing in Loughborough
The type of Loughborough conveyancing searches should be triggered based entirely on the property, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your familiarity of the locality and risks, your overall attitude to risk. What is important is that you properly understand what information the searches could give you. You may then make a decision if you personally think you need that search. Where you are unsure, ask your property lawyer to explain.
How up to date is your database of Loughborough solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? Do Nationwide send you an updated list?
Loughborough conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Nationwide directly.
I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel solicitor as I would much rather instruct a Loughborough based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel solicitors if you take up the "fee-free" deal. Call the mortgage company and see if they allow a monetary alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Loughborough.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Loughborough?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Loughborough. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I opted to have a survey completed on a house in Loughborough ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend refuse to grant a mortgage on this type of home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements from Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can investigate further with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Loughborough.

Completion is due on the disposal of our £275,000 garden flat in Loughborough on Friday in a week. The management company has quoted £408 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Loughborough?
Loughborough conveyancing on leasehold flats more often than not involves the buyer’s solicitor submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to respond to such questions most will be willing to assist. They are at liberty to levy a reasonable charge for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it is above £800. The management information fee required by the landlord must be sent together with a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration charges, without which the invoice is technically not due. Reality however dictates that one has little choice but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to complete the sale of your home.

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 detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
