Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Milnthorpe

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the Leeds Building Society Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Milnthorpe?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

We are planning to move home in May. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Milnthorpe. Conveyancing lawyer was found before I stumbled across your page.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your estate agent but this can only occur after the vendors solicitors advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. Subsequently you will need to tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Milnthorpe or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Milnthorpe.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Principality. Is it usual for Principality to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Milnthorpe is approved on their conveyancing panel? Principality have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

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

Nationwide have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a flat in Milnthorpe has been agreed to, what happens next?

Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the property lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Nationwide or your broker and complete any outstanding forms. Nationwide will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or seller to arrange a time for the valuation to take place. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Milnthorpe.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Milnthorpe and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Milnthorpe lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Milnthorpe. We have lived in Milnthorpe for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must 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 ailment)

I'm buying my first flat in Milnthorpe benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it would put at risk my loan with Chelsea Building Society. Is this normal?.

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.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Milnthorpe before retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to issue a mortgage on such a premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements for example to Halifax. If you call us we can look into this further via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Milnthorpe. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

What advice can you give us when it comes to finding a Milnthorpe conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Milnthorpe conveyancing firm) it is essential that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We recommend that you make enquires with several firms including non Milnthorpe conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be helpful:

    Can they put you in touch with clients in Milnthorpe who can give a testimonial?

I own a 2 bed flat in Milnthorpe, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2009. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding flats in Milnthorpe with a long lease are worth £171,000. The ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2102

With 79 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £7,600 and £8,800 plus costs.

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 in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
