Is it possible for conveyancing in Pendlebury to be completed in less than two weeks?
In a situation where you are under pressure for your conveyancing we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the location as they will benefit local contacts and knowledge. It is even conceivable that they could have conducted previousproperties in the same neighbourhood. You would be best advised to use a Pendlebury conveyancing solicitor. In addition, be sure that the conveyancing firm is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is claimed that just under twenty per cent of Pendlebury conveyancing deals are frustrated or derailed after finding out that a purchaser’s conveyancer was not on their banks list of approved solicitors. In many cases this discovery resulted in the transaction being held up by almost three weeks. It is believed that this issue impacts approximately 100,000 home sales every year. Most Pendlebury conveyancing firms can not represent certain mortgage companies so do check at the outset.
My wife and I purchasing a terrace house in Pendlebury. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to determine if these alterations were previously refused?
Your property lawyer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Pendlebury can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain alterations or require the permission of a 3rd party. Many works require local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Pendlebury. The Pendlebury property was put into my name in July. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in July. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement principally exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Bank of Ireland are being pedantic. The Pendlebury solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Bank of Ireland are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
What can a local search inform me regarding the property I am buying in Pendlebury?
Pendlebury conveyancing often commences with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations such as Searchflow The local search is essential in every Pendlebury conveyancing purchase; that is if you don’t want any unpleasant surprises after you move into your new home. The search should reveal data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject headings.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Pendlebury is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Pendlebury are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Pendlebury you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Pendlebury may ascertain 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 residence.

Back In 2005, I bought a leasehold house in Pendlebury. Conveyancing and HSBC Bank mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in Pendlebury who previously acted has now retired. Do I pay?
The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to be sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder. You do not need to instruct a Pendlebury conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
I invested in buying a 2 bed flat in Pendlebury, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Pendlebury with over 90 years remaining are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease runs out on 21st October 2071
With just 50 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
