Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Spondon

We are buying a 2 bedroom flat in Spondon with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Spondon conveyancer, however the mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or keep our Spondon lawyer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel that this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Spondon conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

We see that you have a post code search directory listing firms on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I retain them for our own conveyancing in Spondon?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Spondon.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Spondon?

You should check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel solicitors where you accept the "fee-free" incentive. Speak to the lender to explore if they offer you a monetary alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Spondon.

three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Spondon took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am purchasing my first flat in Spondon with a loan from TSB. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it may put at risk my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I am employed by a busy estate agent office in Spondon where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Spondon conveyancing firms. Please can you shed some light as to whether the vendor of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

I purchased a studio flat in Spondon, conveyancing having been completed in 2012. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding properties in Spondon with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2089

With just 65 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £13,300 and £15,400 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
