  • 2 Our site is the first site offering you the facility to ensure that your property ownership legalities in Queenborough will be carried out by a property lawyer on your lender’s authorised panel.
  • 3 The hallmark of our conveyancing solicitors in Queenborough is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by large estate agency chains) often falls short of the high standards of professionalism you would hope for.

Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Queenborough , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Queenborough conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure the post completion formalities are addressed.

As far as conveyancing in Queenborough is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. At present approximately 80% of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser has moved in to the property so registration formalities is not typically an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

How does conveyancing in Queenborough differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Queenborough approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because builders in Queenborough usually purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Queenborough or who has acted in the same development.

What are your top tips when it comes to finding a Queenborough conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a conveyancer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Queenborough conveyancing practice) it is essential that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you talk with two or three firms including non Queenborough conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be of use:

    How experienced is the firm with lease extension legislation? If they are not ALEP accredited then what is the reason?

I own a 1 bedroom flat in Queenborough, conveyancing formalities finalised 4 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar flats in Queenborough with an extended lease are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2075

You have 51 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £30,400 and £35,200 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
