My solicitor has uncovered a defect with the lease for the flat we are purchasing in Romney. The seller’s lawyers have suggested defective title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our solicitor has advised that he must be satisfied that the lender is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?

Even though you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the bank are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.

Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that could affect a commercial site in Romney?

I am buying a new build house in Romney with a loan from Skipton Building Society. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative told me not to tell my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with Skipton Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.

Taking into account that I am about to spend 450k on a property in Romney I wish to talk to a conveyancer regarding thehouse move in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor who will be doing your property ownership legalities in Romney.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique person, not a file reference. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for residential conveyancing in Romney should be the figure that you are charged.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Romney. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Romney - 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 am the registered owner of a 2 bed flat in Romney, conveyancing having been completed in 1997. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Romney with over 90 years remaining are worth £171,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2099

With just 79 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
