Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Quedgeley

Does a directory service exist listing Nationwide panel solicitors in Quedgeley on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

No. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association sites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings open the public on the web. Where you are seeking to appoint a Quedgeley conveyancer on the Nationwide please make the most of our facility.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nottingham. Quedgeley conveyancing solicitors were chosen. How long does it take for Nottingham to issue the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

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

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Quedgeley bank branch on a couple of occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Quedgeley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they will not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

The conveyancer has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Just acquired a semi-detached house in Quedgeley , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my title? My Quedgeley conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my purchase is registered.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Quedgeley registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. Currently roughly 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration occurs after the new owner is living at the property so registration formalities is not usually primary concern but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm buying a new build house in Quedgeley with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not inform my conveyancer about this deal as it will impact my loan with Godiva Mortgages Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Quedgeley is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Quedgeley are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Quedgeley you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Quedgeley 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 property.

I am attracted to a two maisonettes in Quedgeley both have in the region of 50 years left on the leases. Will this present a problem?

A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As the lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease deteriorates and results in it becoming more costly to extend the lease. This is why it is advisable to extend the lease term. Sometimes it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage lenders may be reluctant to lend money on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.

I bought a 2 bed flat in Quedgeley, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Quedgeley with an extended lease are worth £227,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2093

With only 72 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

We own a leasehold flat in Quedgeley. Conveyancing was finalised in 2011. I have read on various consumer forums that I should not let the the remaining lease term to fall too short. Is this correct?

Quedgeley residential long term leases are for a fixed term - normally ninety nine years when they are first granted. However a significant appartments in Quedgeley were constructed or converted in the 70’s80’s and so these leases now have under eighty years remaining. This may sound like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders generally require leases to have a minimum of 75 years remaining to be mortgageable. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are approaching 75 years. To maximise your property value you should be considering whether to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. There are also advantages to taking action before the lease hits 80 years as when the lease falls below eighty years the amount you have to pay to extend starts to escalate.
