Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Middlewich or throughout Cheshire is an adversarial process.

I am considering applying for a Lloyds mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Middlewich with 60% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Lloyds ?

How does conveyancing in Middlewich differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Middlewich come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because builders in Middlewich typically acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Middlewich or who has acted in the same development.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to let out our Middlewich basement flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Middlewich conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

A lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the flat owner; in particular, it will set out if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. The majority of leases in Middlewich do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the sublease.

I am the registered owner of a ground floor flat in Middlewich, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding properties in Middlewich with a long lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2081

With 59 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £20,900 and £24,200 plus costs.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.

What if there is a problem with the searches carried out as part of my conveyancing in Middlewich?

Normally, most concerns exposed in Middlewich conveyancing search responses can be dealt with in advance of completion or indemnity insurance may be put in place. It is important to remember that even though you are purchasing the property and may be willing to accept the search results, your mortgage lender may not, and when all said and done they have the final say.
