Nationwide would not normally appoint firms on their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Nationwide list.
Planning on purchasing a house in Wickford. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Wickford conveyancing practitioner is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.
Barclays have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a flat in Wickford has been accepted, what happens next?
Your property agent will wish to be advised as to your conveyancing practitioner's details (be sure the lawyers are on the bank’s approved list). Contact Barclays or your broker and finalise any relevant documentation. Barclays will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Barclays will send the offer to you and your lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Wickford.
Me and my brother purchased a semi-detached Edwardian house in Wickford. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Virgin Money. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You need to assess 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 Wickford and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the position with the conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
I am buying a new build apartment in Wickford. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Wickford
Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial property in Wickford and how can you help?
The 1954 Act gives security of tenure to business lessees, giving them the a statutory right to make a request to court for a renewal lease and continue in occupation at the end of an expired lease. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Wickford is one of our numerous locations in which the firms we work with have offices
I own a leasehold flat in Wickford. Conveyancing and Chelsea Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing practitioner in Wickford who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?
First make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder. There is no need to instruct a Wickford conveyancing solicitor to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
I own a basement flat in Wickford, conveyancing formalities finalised 6 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent flats in Wickford with a long lease are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2095
With 74 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
