Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Peak District

The owners of the house we are purchasing have appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Peak District who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a payment 10k. Are such agreements sensible?

This form of preliminary agreement is not the norm in Peak District, conveyancers will often try and steer clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor is left exposed. Secondly, there is no guarantee that just because the seller has entered into an exclusivity contract they will sell to you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they receive a large enough financial inducement to do so because a wronged buyer with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be obliged establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not equate the financial upside that your seller may gain by breaking the agreement, however morally unworthy the behaviour is.

We are planning to acquire a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Peak District who is on the Co-operative solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local firm?

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Lloyds. Peak District conveyancing lawyers are chosen. How long does it take for Lloyds to issue the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Lloyds conducted the survey? Have you advised Lloyds as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

four months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Peak District concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Peak District I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Peak District in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
