We instructed a Newbury Park based lawyer for our conveyancing in Newbury Park last week. Upon checking the Ts and Cs I noteI am liable for costs even where the transaction does not complete. Would I be best advised to select a web based firm who offer no completion no charge conveyancing in Newbury Park?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to offset the transactions that fail to complete. You should be mindful that these offerings rarely protect you from expenditure such your Newbury Park conveyancing search costs.
My husband and I are refinancing our apartment in Newbury Park with Leeds Building Society. We have a son 18 who lives at home. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose any adults other than ourselves who lives in the flat. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the flat is forfeited by the lender. I have two concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we bought 5 years ago (2) In signing this form is our son in any way compromising his right to inherit the property?
On the face of it your lawyer has done nothing wrong as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Leeds Building Society. This is solely used to protect Leeds Building Society if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Leeds Building Society had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.
I am the registered owner of a freehold premises in Newbury Park yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Newbury Park and has limited impact for conveyancing in Newbury Park but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be extinguished.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Newbury Park conveyancing practitioners were selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Co-operative?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Co-operative completed the valuation? Have you advised Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Newbury Park. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Newbury Park conveyancer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Newbury Park I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Newbury Park for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
