Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Rossendale

I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and have to be out of my let out apartment in Rossendale by 15/3/2023. Conveyancing on my purchase has just started. Is it possible to complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to move into short term accommodation?

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Rossendale costs more?

Rossendale leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Rossendale prior to retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will refuse to issue a loan on a flying freehold premises.

Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, but the agent has warned us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct their chosen conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor used to conveyancing in Rossendale

It is unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the vendor want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is counter productive. Contact the owners directly and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to instruct your preferred Rossendale conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by head office.

Your lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Rossendale leasehold premises is £350. For Rossendale conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to provide the information.
