If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Wadebridge what would it be?

It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Wadebridge conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.

We had instructed solicitors based in Wadebridge on the Lloyds solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me an additional fee for dealing with the Lloyds mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Lloyds?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor is entitled to charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Lloyds but by your Wadebridge conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Lloyds panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.

My wife and I have arranged a further advance on our mortgage from Clydesdale as we want to conduct renovations to our home in Wadebridge. Are we obliged to choose a nearby Wadebridge solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

Clydesdale do not ordinarily appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Clydesdale list.

I have justdiscovered that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Wadebridge for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

The quickest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Wadebridge conveyancing specialists.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent informed us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we use their preferred lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer used to conveyancing in Wadebridge

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this request. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Contact the owners directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Wadebridge conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will give the estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by head office.

What advice can you give us when it comes to choosing a Wadebridge conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

If you are instructing a solicitor for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Wadebridge conveyancing firm) it is most important 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 Wadebridge conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be of use:

    If the firm is not ALEP accredited then why not? Can they put you in touch with clients in Wadebridge who can give a testimonial?

I acquired a leasehold flat in Wadebridge, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2007. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Similar properties in Wadebridge with an extended lease are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease runs out on 21st October 2086

With just 65 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £13,300 and £15,400 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.

22 days into buying a property in Wadebridge. Conveyancing lawyer has called to say the property is "Leasehold". Will this likely make a difference on our mortgage valuation?

Wadebridge conveyancing does not in most situations involve leasehold houses. The crucial factor here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a nominal rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it shouldn't impact the marketability too much.

At the other end of the spectrum, if it's, say, Sixty years it is bound to have a significant effect on the saleability, and most likely wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be stated in the lease which should be made available to your lawyer.
