Recently asked questions about conveyancing in St Ives

We opted for a high street lawyer for my conveyancing in St Ives recently. Looking through the Terms I notewe are on the hook for costs even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I ditch them and instruct a web based lawyer who offer no move no charge conveyancing in St Ives?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be higher to neutralise the conveyances that abort. Please beware that these promotions tend not to cover expenditure for instance St Ives conveyancing search expenses.

Do I have to attend the offices of the solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in St Ives so that I can attend their offices if necessary.

Whereas this was necessary twenty years ago, almost all lenders no longer need their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the mortgagors signature. It will still be necessary for you to hand over identification documents and there are still distinct benefits to instructing a locally based ayer, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in St Ives.

Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the number one reason for stalling in St Ives conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in St Ives.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in St Ives. 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 legal work.

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in St Ives

    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. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. 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. Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?

Looking forward to exchange soon on a basement flat in St Ives. Conveyancing solicitors have said that they will have a report out to me within the next couple of days. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?

Your report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in St Ives should include some of the following:

    Repair and maintenance of the flat Rent payments - how much and when you need to pay, and be on notice if this is subject to change Where does the liability rest for repairing the window frames Whether the lease restricts you from letting out the property, or working from home Defining your rights in respect of the communal areas in the building.For instance, does the lease permit a right of way over a path or staircase?
For details of the information to be contained in your report on your leasehold property in St Ives please ask your lawyer in advance of your conveyancing in St Ives.

I invested in buying a 1 bedroom flat in St Ives, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in St Ives with over 90 years remaining are worth £222,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease expires on 21st October 2091

With 70 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
