Last November we completed a house move in Swinton. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we suspect were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been ordered for conveyancing in Swinton?

The query is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Swinton. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor answers a questionnaire called a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information provided is misleading, you could possibly take legal action against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Swinton.

We are looking to buy a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Swinton who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Swinton.

I have an AIP. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel lawyer as I would prefer to appoint a Swinton based conveyancing firm?

Do check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel lawyers where you accept the "fee-free" deal. Contact the lender and ask if they allow a monetary alternative. Some lenders have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Swinton.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two apartments in Swinton both have in the region of forty five years remaining on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

There are plenty of short leases in Swinton. The lease is a right to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease shortens the marketability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more costly to extend the lease. This is why it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be reluctant to lend money on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this area.

I own a garden flat in Swinton, conveyancing having been completed May 2001. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Swinton with over 90 years remaining are worth £255,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2094

With 73 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

Why is it not possible to complete our conveyancing in Swinton on May bank holiday?

This is due to the fact that on completion the funds will be transferred electronically between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s lawyer and currently this can only take place on a working day. So you can't complete on a weekend either.
