We are purchasing a apartment in Standish. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a lawyer? On the day of competition we have to deposit our life savings into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

Please help - my lawyer advises that lack of planning permission insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Standish?

The appropriate level of lack of planning permission indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Barclays and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

About to purchase house in Standish. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Standish solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of obstruction in Standish house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Standish.

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Standish concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website 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 have been sourcing a conveyancing lawyer in Standish for my house move. Is it possible to check a firm’s complaints history with the legal regulator?

Members of the public may find presented Solicitor Regulator Association (SRA) determinations arising from investigations commenced on or after Jan 2008. Go to Check a solicitor's record.

What makes a Standish lease problematic?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Standish. Most leases are unique and drafting errors can result in certain sections are erroneous. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts. Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the premises

You will encounter difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Santander, Coventry Building Society, and Bank of Ireland all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.

Standish Leasehold Conveyancing - Sample of Questions you should ask Prior to buying

    What is the length of the lease? Where a Standish lease has fewer than 80 years it will affect the marketability of the property. Check with your lender that they are happy with residual term of the lease. A short lease means that you will almost definitely need a lease extension sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this will be. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the property for a couple of years in order to be eligible to extend the lease. It would be sensible to find out as much as possible about the company managing the building as they will either make life much easier or problematic. Being a leasehold owner you are frequently in the clutches of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to every day issues like the cleanliness of the common parts. Ask other people if they are happy with them. In conclusion, investigate as to the dates that you are obliged pay the maintenance charge to the relevant party and precisely what it includes.
