Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ulverston

We went with a local firm for my conveyancing in Ulverston last week. Reviewing the Terms I seewe are liable for charges even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and select a web based conveyancing company who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Ulverston?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to offset those transactions that do not go ahead. Do bear in mind that these promotions generally do not cover expenditure such your Ulverston conveyancing search expenses.

How up to date is your database of Ulverston solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel? Do TSB send you an updated list?

Ulverston conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from TSB directly.

What happens if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the Aldermore Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Ulverston?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

I acquired my house on 3 March and the transaction details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Ulverston expressed confidence that it should be formalised in less than a month. Are properties in Ulverston particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Ulverston registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration occurs once the new owner is living at the premises therefore an expedited registration is not usually top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

What are your top tips when it comes to choosing a Ulverston conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Ulverston conveyancing practice) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We suggest that you talk with several firms including non Ulverston conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be helpful:

    If the firm is not ALEP accredited then why not? What volume of lease extensions have they carried out in Ulverston in the last year?

I inherited a split level flat in Ulverston, conveyancing formalities finalised September 1997. How much will my lease extension cost? Equivalent flats in Ulverston with an extended lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2083

With only 59 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £20,900 and £24,200 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt 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 based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
