Recently been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Slade Green who conducted the legals 18 months ago requesting a conveyancing estimate based on an identical type of house move (a leasehold premises and a freehold premises) of similar values with a home loan from Coventry Building Society. It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Better the devil I know or should I try and find a cheaper internet firm of conveyancing solicitor?
The estimate does seem a little steep. If you you were to look around you might trim some of the cost by as much as £125. On the other hand, assuming were happy with the legal work the firm offered you mightcome to regret choosing an an untested lawyer. Remember to be sure the solicitor can represent Coventry Building Society.

Will lawyers request money up-front for my conveyancing in Slade Green?
If you are buying a property in Slade Green your solicitor will request that you put them with monies to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Generally this is asked for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. When the down payment is as part of the total price then this will be asked for immediately in advance of exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is due should be sent to your lawyer a couple of days prior to the day of completion.
Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a online directory to to identify solicitors on the Loughborough BS conveyancing panel for instance in Slade Green?
We would not expect to be advised of any intention on the part of the BSA to develop such a search facility.
I am planning to move home in October. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Slade Green. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across your website.
On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from the selling agent however this should only be done after the sellers lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. Subsequently you can tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Slade Green or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Slade Green.
The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Slade Green. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.
I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called my Slade Green building society branch on various occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Slade Green conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they will not lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?
Your property lawyer has to follow the CML Handbook section two provisions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
Just acquired a semi-detached house in Slade Green , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Slade Green conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure that my name is registered.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Slade Green registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the premises so post completion formalities is not typically primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
Frank (my husband) and I may need to let out our Slade Green garden flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Slade Green conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
A small minority of properties in Slade Green do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
My wife and I have hit a brick wall in seeking a lease extension in Slade Green. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?
if there is a missing landlord or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to determine the price.
An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Slade Green flat is Various @ Colombus Square in January 2012. the Tribunal calculated the premiums to be paid for new leases for each of the flats in Mariners Walk to be £3822 and the premium to be paid for the new lease of 2 Knights Court to be £4439. This case related to 13 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 76 years.
