Just been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Meliden who acted for me 18 months ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of house move (a leasehold premises and a freehold premises) of similar values with a loan from Aldermore. I am now being quoted twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?

Do I find a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Meliden?

Two types of professional can carry out conveyancing in Meliden namely licenced conveyancers or solicitors. The two can handle the legal services that you need to complete the disposal or purchase of property. Both are duty bound to conduct Meliden conveyancing to the same quality and guidelines so you can be safe in the knowledge that your conveyancing will be properly carried out and that all necessary steps should be appropriately followed.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Bank of Ireland. Meliden conveyancing lawyers have been appointed. How long does it take for Bank of Ireland to forward the offer to the conveyancer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Bank of Ireland completed the valuation? Have you advised Bank of Ireland as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I had an offer accepted on a house in Meliden on 21/3/2024, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Solicitor instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to TSB and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel. Are TSB entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for TSB to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the TSB conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Will my lawyer be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Meliden.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Meliden. Plenty of people will buy a house in Meliden, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that may be carried out by the buyer or by their conveyancers which will figure out the risks in Meliden. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to determine whether the property has ever been flooded. In the event that the property has been flooded in past and is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser could bring a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect answer. The buyer’s conveyancers will also carry out an enviro report. This should indicate whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be conducted.

I am buying my first flat in Meliden benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not to tell my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will impact my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

There are only 62 years remaining on my flat in Meliden. I now wish to extend my lease but my freeholder is missing. What options are available to me?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have made all reasonable attempts to locate the freeholder. For most situations a specialist would be useful to carry out a search and prepare an expert document to be used as proof that the freeholder can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer both on devolving into the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Meliden.

I own a ground floor flat in Meliden, conveyancing was carried out 9 years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Meliden with over 90 years remaining are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2098

With just 74 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
