Having been suggested to visit your company we were about to appoint conveyancing solicitor in Queenborough found using your comparison tool but stumbled across some other estimates via the web look less pricey – how come?
You can find many firms of conveyancers marketing what appear to be very low prices. You should give due consideration as to how important this transaction is to you that you are willing to be penny wise pound foolish with regard to the quality of the conveyancing. Many of them highlight a low quote as a headline but plant supplemental fees in the small print..
I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a Queenborough based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the chances are that give you one of their panel conveyancers where you accept the "fee-free" offer. Contact the bank to check if they offer you a cash alternative. Some banks have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Queenborough.
4 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Queenborough took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Queenborough. 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.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Queenborough
Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. 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. Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
I own a leasehold house in Queenborough. Conveyancing and Bank of Ireland mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Queenborough who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Queenborough conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
I own a studio flat in Queenborough, conveyancing was carried out March 1996. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar properties in Queenborough with an extended lease are worth £202,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2076
With 56 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £29,500 and £34,000 as well as professional fees.
The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
I'm selling a bungalow in Queenborough. I have found my conveyancer's company on the CLC list, but I can't locate my lawyer's name on the list. Should I be concerned?
Not every individual in the company must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the conveyancing, the actual day-to-day activity can be undertaken by unlicensed staff.
