I am in the throes of switching my current homeowner mortgage to a BTL Platform Home Loans Ltd mortgage. I was told by my financial advisor that I require a lawyer for this. I had a chat my past Morecambe conveyancing firm who acted on my behalf when I originally bought the house. The fee calculation issued of £470 is an eye-watering amount to do this as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.

Some advice if I may. My Morecambe solicitor is informing me me that he is legally obliged toorder Morecambe conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Virgin Moneyconveyancing panel. Is this really necessary?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a lender your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Morecambe conveyancing searches.

I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Morecambe. I I would like to check if they are on the HSBC Bank approved list of lawyers. Could you assist?

We are purchasing a terrace house in Morecambe. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will the conveyancing process include checks to see if these alterations are allowed?

Your conveyancer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Morecambe can sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit certain works or necessitated the permission of another owner. Certain works need local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

Please help - my lawyer advises that missing deeds insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Morecambe?

The right level of missing deeds indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and Virgin Money. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.

Is there a list of Lloyds panel solicitors in Morecambe on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

No. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few banks make their panel listings open the public over the internet. Where you are seeking to appoint a Morecambe solicitor on the Lloyds please make the most of our tool.

Me and my brother purchased a semi-detached Edwardian property in Morecambe. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Virgin Money. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Morecambe and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the position with the conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

I have just appointed agents to market my basement apartment in Morecambe. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently received a yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the maintenance contribution as usual because all ground rent and service invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I am the registered owner of a basement flat in Morecambe, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2007. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Morecambe with over 90 years remaining are worth £191,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2075

With only 53 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £27,600 and £31,800 as well as 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 investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
