Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Whaley Bridge

Completed the sale of my flat in Whaley Bridge last November but my buyer keeps texting me to moan that her lawyer needs to hear from mylawyer. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?

Post completion of your disposal your lawyer should deliver the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. If applicable, your solicitor should also send confirmation that the mortgage has been redeemed to the buyers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion procedures specific conveyancing in Whaley Bridge.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Whaley Bridge?

You should check but the the probability is that give you one of their panel conveyancers if you accept the "fee-free" deal. Contact the lender to see if they allow a monetary alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Whaley Bridge.

I am planning to move house in August. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Whaley Bridge. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across your site.

On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from your property agent but this can only happen once the previous owners lawyers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. After that you will need to tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can help you locate a conveyancing in Whaley Bridge or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Whaley Bridge.

My wife and I are in the throws of looking at flats in Whaley Bridge and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a mortgage with RBS.

It would be sensible to start your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the EA. As you are obtaining a mortgage with RBS, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the RBS conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I own a terraced Georgian property in Whaley Bridge. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Skipton Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Skipton Building Society to clarify?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Whaley Bridge and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.

Are there any apps to assist me to search for a Whaley Bridge law firm on the The Royal Bank of Scotland conveyancing panel? I have a car and am willing to travel upto 10miles to meet the conveyancer.

We have listed some Whaley Bridge conveyancing firms at the bottom of this page and you can call them to see whether they are on the The Royal Bank of Scotland member panel

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden flat in Whaley Bridge. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just had a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the invoice as you normally would as all ground rent and service invoices will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I am the registered owner of a 1 bedroom flat in Whaley Bridge, conveyancing was carried out in 2005. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable flats in Whaley Bridge with over 90 years remaining are worth £197,000. The ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2079

With only 55 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" 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 the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
