Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stretford

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Stretford?

Do check but the the likelihood is that allocate you one of their panel solicitors where you want the "fee-free" incentive. Call the mortgage company and determine if they offer you a cash alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Stretford.

I need some fast conveyancing in Stretford as I have an ultimatum to complete inside one month. Fortunately I do not need a mortgage. Is it possible to decline from having conveyancing searches to save money and time?

As you are are a mortgage free purchaser you have the choice not to have searches carried out although no lawyer would recommend that you don't. With lots of history conveyancing in Stretford the following are examples of what can arise and therefore impact the marketability of the property: Enforcement Notices, Overdue Fees, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Stretford concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 premises 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 decided to have a survey completed on a property in Stretford prior to instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will refuse to grant a loan on a flying freehold property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Stretford. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I am attracted to a two flats in Stretford which have approximately 50 years left on the lease term. Will this present a problem?

There are no two ways about it. A leasehold apartment in Stretford is a wasting asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it adversely affects the marketability of the premises. The majority of purchasers and banks, leases with less than 75 years become less and less marketable. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the property for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a residence with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Stretford conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. A more straightforward and quicker method of extending would be to contact your landlord directly and sound him out on the prospect of extending the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that the agreed terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

I bought a studio flat in Stretford, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar properties in Stretford with an extended lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease runs out on 21st October 2082

With only 58 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £21,900 and £25,200 as well as legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.

Been reading online that Stretford solicitors are more costly than Stretford conveyancers in Stretford when it comes to purchasing a house. Am I better off using a conveyancer or a solicitor where I am buying for my home move in Stretford.

When it comes to conveyancing in Stretford the costs are unlikely to vary dramatically depending on whether the legal expert is a licenced conveyancer or solicitor.
