Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wadhurst

I am looking for value for money conveyancer. Should I go for for an internet conveyancer rather than a local Wadhurst conveyancing solicitor?

Existing third party connections is an important consideration when appointing conveyancing lawyers.

Possessing vast intelligence of the local area is an advantage.

When it comes to lenders such as UBS, do Wadhurst conveyancers have to pay a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are unaware of any bank fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Wadhurst. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

Most banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Wadhurst building society branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Wadhurst conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the conveyancing practitioner is on the bank approved list, she or he must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agency in Wadhurst where we see a number of leasehold sales derailed as a result of short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Wadhurst conveyancing solicitors. Can you confirm whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

Wadhurst Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should consider before Purchasing

    Most Wadhurst leasehold properties will incur a service bill for the upkeep of the building set by the management company. Should you buy the property you will have to meet this charge, normally periodically throughout the year. This may be anything from two or three hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for large purpose-built buildings. There will also be a rentcharge to be met annual, normally this is not a significant figure, say around £50-£100 but you need to enquire it because on occasion it could be many hundreds of pounds. In the main the outlay for major works tend not to be included within maintenance charges, albeit that some managing agents in Wadhurst obliged leasehold owners to pay into a sinking fund created for the specific purpose of establishing a fund for major works.
