Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Tintern

My mortgage broker has requested my Tintern lawyer’ panel member for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have e-mailed my local Tintern branch but they cant find it on their system.

You are best placed to get this information from your Tintern conveyancer . They keep a central record lender panel numbers.

About to place an offer on a leasehold apartment in Tintern. The selling agents advise that it is the norm for flats in Tintern to have less than 75 years remaining. I am getting a mortgage with Virgin. Will the property be mortgageable given that the lease has Seventy One years remaining.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are obtaining a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Virgin have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 4/3/2024 the requirements read as follows :

85 years at the time of completion. If it's less, we require it to be extended on or before completion.

We are buying a property in Tintern. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we will need to send money 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.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with TSB. Tintern conveyancing practitioners have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from TSB?

There is no definitive answer here. Have TSB conducted the survey? Have you informed TSB as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the TSB conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Tintern. My mortgage broker suggested a property lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £200. A couple of days later, the solicitor called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Clydesdale panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Tintern?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Tintern. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I have been recommended by numerous property agents in Tintern to choose a property lawyer using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your site rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?

We refuse to offer any financial incentive for sending work our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I have recently realised that I have Seventy years left on my flat in Tintern. I am keen to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What options are available to me?

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to locate the lessor. On the whole a specialist may be useful to carry out a search and prepare a report to be accepted by the court as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Tintern.

I own a 1st floor flat in Tintern, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2006. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Tintern with over 90 years remaining are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease expires on 21st October 2086

With only 62 years unexpired the likely cost is going to span between £17,100 and £19,800 plus legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
