Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Malpas

At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Malpas and am I required to attend the conveyancers branch?

Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Malpas you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we work with offer a countrywide conveyancing service and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Malpas)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to to identify solicitors on the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society conveyancing panel for example in Malpas?

Lexsure has not been advised of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a search facility.

We are intent on selling our property in Malpas and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Malpas lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Malpas. Having lived in Malpas for 4 years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent informed us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint the agent's preferred solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Malpas

It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your preferred Malpas conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Malpas from the point of view of expediting the sale process?

  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Malpas can be reduced where you instruct lawyers as soon as your agents start marketing the property and ask them to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the purchasers’ conveyancers.
  • If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should ensure that you have the original share document. Obtaining a re-issued share certificate is often a lengthy process and frustrates many a Malpas conveyancing deal. If a new share certificate is required, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity. A minority of Malpas leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, you should notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand bank and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. The majority of freeholders or Management Companies in Malpas levy fees for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should find out the fee that they propose to charge. The management information sought on or before finding a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Malpas. You may think that you are aware of the number of years left on your lease but it would be advisable verify this via your conveyancers. A purchaser's conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is below 80 years. In the circumstances it is important at an as soon as possible that you consider whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale.

I purchased a 1st floor flat in Malpas, conveyancing formalities finalised in 1999. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding properties in Malpas with a long lease are worth £222,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2094

With just 70 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as professional fees.

The figure 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 due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

Having used your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the bank conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the lender approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?

Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the mortgage company solicitor panel.
