Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mobberley

We are about to exchange contracts for a semi detached house in Mobberley. We encountered a problem. The mortgage offer with Lloyds TSB Bank runs out on 31/1/2022 but the owners are insisting on a completion date of 2/2/2022. Is it possible to prolong the mortgage offer?

The person best placed to deal with your issue is your solicitors who should determine whether they corresponding with the mortgage broker, owner’s representatives, estate agents or conceivably all parties taking into account the circumstances your conveyancing as of today.

I am selling my home in Mobberley. Does my solicitor need to be required to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Lloyds conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.

Can you help - my lawyer says that breach of easement insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Mobberley conveyancing?

The appropriate level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Nottingham, do Mobberley property lawyers face a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are not aware of any bank fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, UBS are being difficult. The Mobberley solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but UBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do UBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that UBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why UBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Mobberley and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Mobberley conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Mobberley. We have lived in Mobberley for many years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of 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 sickness)

I'm buying a new build house in Mobberley with a loan from National Westminster Bank. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the side-deal as it will affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.

I own a leasehold flat in Mobberley. Conveyancing and The Royal Bank of Scotland mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing solicitor in Mobberley who acted for me is not around. What should I do?

The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Mobberley conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I bought a 1st floor flat in Mobberley, 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? Equivalent properties in Mobberley with a long lease are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2076

With only 55 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
