Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Nelson

I am not in a position to travel far from Nelson. What is the rationale as to why all Nelson solicitors aren't included on all bank panels?

As inequitable as it may appear for banks to restrict who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s viewpoint, the flip side is that lenders are increasingly anxious and consider it vital to defend themselves against mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern lenders have restricted their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a size that they are happy to control.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Nelson. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Nelson

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Nelson is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Nelson are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Nelson you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Nelson 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 premises.

Nelson conveyancing for business premises incorporates a broad range of guidance, offered by regulated solicitors, relating to business property.

My brother is buying a leasehold flat in Nelson. He has received a fee estimate by the property lawyer recommended by the estate agents and it came to £1385 . It was fifteen years ago I sold and purchased a property and it cost was £just under five hundred pounds. Have costs really gone up that much?

What does the conveyancing estimate include? Is it just for the legal fees, or what you will be paying in total (for instance Nelson searches, land registry fees, etc)
