Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Pevensey

My fiance’s dad is a solicitor. I suspect that I can be offered mate’s pricing for conveyancing, but if not, what level of figure should I be expecting for conveyancing in Pevensey?

It’s wise to get two or three conveyancing quotes. Do use our search tool on this site. Whilst amounts seem to be different but the service one can expect differ between law firms as is the case with the vast majority of professional services.

We are due to complete on the purchase of a house in Pevensey but as a consequence of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the current proprietors in the sum of three thousand pounds by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract but Coventry BS are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?

The conveyancing practitioner that is on a Coventry BS conveyancing panel is obliged to disclose to Coventry BS of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to notify the reduction to Coventry BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Coventry BS and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Pevensey.

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Pevensey. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I am unable to locate the title documents. Will this cause complications?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by the lender or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Pevensey involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

The deeds to my house are lost. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Pevensey 5 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?

Assuming the title is registered the details of your proprietorship will be held by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, find your house and obtain current copies of the property title for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Pevensey. 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.

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. 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. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Pevensey. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Pevensey - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I own a basement flat in Pevensey, conveyancing was carried out February 2012. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Pevensey with a long lease are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2088

With 67 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £10,500 and £12,000 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
