Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Salford

Our Salford lawyer has spotted a difference between the information in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he must ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s course or action right?

Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Salford? Is this really necessary?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing instruction. The Client Care letter that you need to sign will no doubt stipulate this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. If you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your conveyancer can not take you on as a client.

My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Salford. I need to find out if they are on the Nationwide Building Society conveyancing panel. Can you help?

You should contact your lawyer and enquire whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you should call Nationwide Building Society who may be able to confirm.

What will a local search inform me regarding the property I am buying in Salford?

Salford conveyancing often starts with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search organisations for example Searchflow The local search is essential in every Salford conveyancing purchase; as long as you wish to avoid any nasty once you have moved into your new home. The search should supply data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject areas.

I have just started marketing my ground floor flat in Salford. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have recently received a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the service charge as usual because all rents and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I invested in buying a 1 bedroom flat in Salford, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Salford with over 90 years remaining are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2089

With only 67 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £10,500 and £12,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

Your search tool is useful but there are many lawyers listed near Salford being on the lender conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a specific firm on the mortgage company approved panel?

We are not in the business of recommending one firm above another as the right Salford conveyancing solicitor for you depends on where your priorities lie. For example you may require a local firm with Salford knowledge or you might be looking for the low cost conveyancing. We recommend that you speak to 3 or 4 lawyers listed before you make your choice..
