Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Morecambe

Recently been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Morecambe who conducted the legals two years ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house move (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a home loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. It looks as though am now being charged double. Stick with what I know or should I try and find a cheaper online property lawyer?

The charges are a tad high. Where you are happy to invest time comparing prices you might shave off some of the cost by say £125. On the other hand, if you were pleased with the legal work the firm gave you couldcome to rue choosing an a cheaper solicitor. Remember to be sure that the conveyancer can represent Platform Home Loans Ltd. You can utilise our search tool to locate a Morecambe conveyancing firm on the Platform Home Loans Ltd member panel, which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Morecambe.

Me and my partner are soon to complete buying a property in Morecambe but as a consequence of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the vendor of £3k taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract yet RBS will not permit this. Why were they involved?

Any lawyer that is on the RBS approved list is obliged to disclose to RBS of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to notify the price change to RBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, RBS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Morecambe.

I am buying my first flat in Morecambe with a mortgage from Lloyds TSB Bank. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about this extras as it will adversely affect my loan with the bank. 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.

Given that I am about to spend over three hundred thousand on a terraced house in Morecambe I would like to have a conversation with the conveyancer concerning thehome move prior to instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

What are your top tips when it comes to appointing a Morecambe conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Morecambe conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We recommend that you talk with several firms including non Morecambe conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be useful:

    What volume of lease extensions has the firm carried out in Morecambe in the last twenty four months? What are the charges for lease extension conveyancing?

I acquired a leasehold flat in Morecambe, conveyancing formalities finalised in 1996. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar flats in Morecambe with over 90 years remaining are worth £202,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £60 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2080

With just 56 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £29,500 and £34,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

Me and my fiance have recently had an offer agreed on a flat and had meeting on Tuesday with HSBC for the mortgage. They warned me that when it comes to choosing a solicitor that unless they are on their approved panel of conveyancing practitioners then we will incur an extra charge of £200. This is because they would then have to instruct a solicitor to act on their behalf in addition to the one we select for ourselves and we will be on the hook for their invoice. I have requested HSBC to send me with a list so I can seek estimates only from their approved solicitors but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?

You can enquire of HSBC what their panel criteria is for a conveyancer.Then ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on loans for HSBC previously. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with HSBC. Alternatively please utilise our search facility and we may be able to find you a solicitor in Morecambe on the panel for HSBC.
