Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sandy

I am searching for value for money property lawyer. Should I go for for an online conveyancer rather than a high street Sandy conveyancing lawyer?

Generally conveyancing solicitors in your area will enjoy good relationships with your local authority, which can assist with your Sandy conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will require. It also helps if they enjoy good relationships with the Land Registry covering your area Sandy, other lawyers in the location and Sandy Estate Agents.

It is a dozen years since I bought my house in Sandy. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title deeds. Is this a major issue?

Don’t worry too much. First there is a chance that the deeds will be with the lender or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Sandy relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.

I am considering applying for a HSBC mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Sandy with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for HSBC ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the HSBC conveyancing panel, but HSBC would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

My wife and I are planning on selling our house in Sandy and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Sandy. We have lived in Sandy for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

I am thinking of appointing a conveyancing solicitor in Sandy for my house move. Can I review a firm’s record with the legal regulator?

One can search for documented Solicitor Regulator Association (SRA) determinations stemming from investigations from 2008 onwards. Go to Check a solicitor's record. For details about the period before 1 January 2008, or to check a solicitors history, ring 0870 606 2555, 08.00 - 18.00 any week day save for Tuesday when lines open at 9.30am. For non-uk callers, use +44 (0)121 329 6800. The SRA may recorded telephone calls for training requirements.

What are your top tips when it comes to choosing a Sandy conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Sandy conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We advise that you make enquires with several firms including non Sandy conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be of use:

    What are the charges for lease extension conveyancing? How many lease extensions have they completed in Sandy in the last twenty four months?

I purchased a studio flat in Sandy, conveyancing formalities finalised December 2012. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Similar flats in Sandy with an extended lease are worth £206,000. The ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2088

With just 66 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £12,400 and £14,200 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
