We are about to exchange on the purchase of a property in Sedbergh but as a consequence of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the owner in the sum of £2k taking the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet Bank of Ireland will not permit this. Should they have been approached?

The conveyancing practitioner being on the Bank of Ireland approved list is required to inform Bank of Ireland of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to notify the price change to Bank of Ireland then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Bank of Ireland and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Sedbergh.

What is the first thing I need to know about purchase conveyancing in Sedbergh?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Sedbergh or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of room for conflict between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the seller, selling agent and sometimes the mortgage company. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Sedbergh should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the legal process whose interest is to protect your legal interests and to protect you.

There is a definite increase of a "blame" culture- someone must be blamed for the process taking so long. You should always trust your lawyer ahead of the other parties in the home moving process.

My wife and I have organised the release of further monies on our home loan from Leeds Building Society as we intend to carry out a loft conversion to our house in Sedbergh. Are we obliged to select a bricks and mortar Sedbergh solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

Leeds Building Society do not ordinarily appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.

The mortgage over my property is with Lloyds for my property in Sedbergh. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Lloyds?

Your original mortgage agreement with Lloyds will provide that you need their approval prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Lloyds’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Lloyds 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 Lloyds directly. You need not do this via a Lloyds conveyancing panel solicitor.

I purchased a garden flat in Sedbergh, conveyancing having been completed 10 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent flats in Sedbergh with a long lease are worth £175,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2080

With just 58 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £23,800 and £27,400 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
