Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Murton

Are the Murton conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Yorkshire BS?

Murton conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Yorkshire BS directly.

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Kent Reliance Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Murton?

The first thing to point out is that, 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 for a fee.

How does conveyancing in Murton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Murton contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because developers in Murton usually purchase the site, 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Murton or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Murton is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Murton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Murton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Murton may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

I'm converting the mortgage on my existing house to a buy to let mortgage with Halifax and I will use the rest of the raised equity towards further house. The location we are talking about is Murton. Will your conveyancers be able to act for both sets of lenders and tie in the conveyances?

Do use our comparison tool on this site to be sure that the lawyers are approved by both banks. On the basis that they are your lawyer should be able to connect the two deals but you should have a chat with you solicitor and communicate your desired outcome and requirements.

I have recently realised that I have Fifty years left on my flat in Murton. I now wish to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What are my options?

On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you have done all that could be expected to find the lessor. In some cases an enquiry agent should be useful to carry out a search and prepare an expert document to be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor both on investigating the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Murton.

I am the registered owner of a leasehold flat in Murton, conveyancing was carried out April 1998. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in Murton with an extended lease are worth £191,000. The ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2074

You have 53 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £27,600 and £31,800 as well as legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns 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.
