Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Todmorden?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Todmorden your solicitor will ask you put them with monies to cover the search fees. Generally this is requested to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any deposit is payable against the total price then this will be required shortly prior to contracts are exchanged. The closing balance that is needed should be transferred a couple of days prior to the completion date.
We are due to move house in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Todmorden. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across your website.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from your selling agent but this should only be done once the vendors lawyers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released. Subsequently you will need to advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal company but can help you find a conveyancing in Todmorden or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Todmorden.
is it true that all Todmorden solicitors on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Bank of Ireland approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
We expect to receive a OIP from Kent Reliance this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Kent Reliance recommend any Todmorden solicitors on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Todmorden solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Kent Reliance through the process.
My colleague advised me that if I am purchasing in Todmorden I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Todmorden Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning Todmorden.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Todmorden 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?
Assuming you have a registered title the details of your ownership will be evidenced by HMLR with a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and get up to date copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for a small fee.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Todmorden. Before diving in I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Todmorden - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I inherited a basement flat in Todmorden, conveyancing was carried out May 1999. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent properties in Todmorden with an extended lease are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2097
You have 74 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you 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 are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
My conveyancing in Todmorden is completing on Friday, yet the couple I am purchasing from has asked to move out the next day at PM. Can I agree to such a idea?
In situations where you require a bank loan then your solicitor will insist that you have vacant possession on Friday - the bank will compel it.
