Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sandwich

We were just about to sign contracts for a property in Sandwich. We encountered a stumbling block. The loan offer with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society expires on 15/8/2024 but the sellers are insisting on a completion date of 19/8/2024. Is it possible to prolong the mortgage expiry date?

The person best placed to address this question is your solicitors who will calculate whether they corresponding with the lender, vendor’s representatives, selling agents or possibly all parties based on what has happend in your house move to date.

We are planning to acquire a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Sandwich who is on the Kent Reliance approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Sandwich.

When it comes to lenders such as Lloyds, do Sandwich solicitors incur an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

I currently have a mortgage with Kent Reliance for my property in Sandwich. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Kent Reliance?

You must advise Kent Reliance prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Kent Reliance’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Kent Reliance will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Kent Reliance directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel lawyer.

After what seems like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Sandwich agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Sandwich. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with UBS started?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Sandwich conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should ensure that your property lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the specifics of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of purchasers will apply for a home loan with UBS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to move forward with the conveyancing in Sandwich.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Sandwich. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Sandwich

    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. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Sandwich I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Sandwich in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

My business partner and I are wishing to lease a unit on a shopping parade. Can you recommend lawyers offering no-move-no charges for non-domestic conveyancing in Sandwich for under 2k?

We can recommend firms who host a wealth of experience of commercial conveyancing in Sandwich, including the disposal and acquisition of businesses as well as simply property. If you are intending to acquire or dispose of a shop, pub, restaurant, office, retail unit or a whole business we will find you the right solicitor. As for the costs these will vary based on the structure and complexity of the deal. Please provide us with your contact information or email so as to enable us to furnish you with a detailed commercial conveyancing quote.
