IfI were to acquire a simple residential housein Sanderstead for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Sanderstead?
Any savings you would achieve will be limited to the Sanderstead conveyancing searches. Your conveyancer still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with your sellers solicitor, stamp duty submission, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a mortgage but it won't be a lot.
I am helping my niece sell her property in Sanderstead. Does the solicitor commission an EPC or it is for me to see to?
After the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates remained a mandatory element of selling a property. An energy assessment should be to hand before the property is advertised. This is not as aspect of the sale process that conveyancers normally organise. If you are using a Sanderstead conveyancing lawyer they might be able to arrange energy assessments given their contacts with reputable local energy assessors
is it true that all Sanderstead solicitor practices on the Principality conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Principality approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be regulated by the CLC.
We had instructed conveyancing lawyers locally in Sanderstead on the Skipton solicitor panel. They have just billed me a further charge for dealing with the Skipton mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Skipton?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer can levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by Skipton but by your Sanderstead solicitor. Some firms on the Skipton panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
About to purchase a new build flat in Sanderstead. 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 conveyancing.
Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Sanderstead
Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please supply a car parking plan.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Sanderstead I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Sanderstead for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
