Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Prescot is more expensive?

In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Prescot and elsewhere usually requires more hours of investigation compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes lease investigation, liaising with the landlord concerning serving appropriate notices, securing current service charge and management information, securing the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different leaseholders have owned the lease since it was first granted.

I am purchasing a terraced house in Prescot. How practical is it for me to do the conveyancing?

Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Prescot you will have to appoint a solicitor on your lender's conveyancing panel to look after their interests.

My lawyer has informed me that breach of easement insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Prescot conveyancing?

The appropriate level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Nationwide Building Society and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

We are getting the release of further funds on our mortgage from Bank of Ireland as we want to carry out improvements to our property in Prescot. Do we need to select a local Prescot solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

Bank of Ireland do not ordinarily require firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Bank of Ireland list.

I am expecting a OIP from Co-operative this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Prescot solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Prescot solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Prescot. Conveyancing is daunting 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 questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Prescot

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Please supply a car parking plan. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent has warned us that the vendor will only proceed if we instruct the agent's recommended conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Prescot

It is unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to use your own,trusted Prescot conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by head office.
