Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wigston

Me and my partner are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Wigston with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Wigston conveyancer, however the lender says she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have no option but to appoint one of the lender panel solicitors or retain our Wigston lawyer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We regard this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Wigston conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

We are looking to buy a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Wigston who is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for RBS . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Wigston.

I have recentlybecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Wigston for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest way to see if the property is in your name, you can carry out 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 Wigston conveyancing specialists.

Is it best to instruct a Wigston conveyancing lawyer based in the location that I am buying? I have an old university friend who can execute the conveyancing but her office is approximately 350kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a local Wigston conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to execute paperwork, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust used your friend and the majority were content that must outweigh using an unknown Wigston conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.

I own a leasehold house in Wigston. Conveyancing and Alliance & Leicester mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Wigston who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

First make enquiries of HMLR to be sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Wigston conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I inherited a 1 bedroom flat in Wigston, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Wigston with a long lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 per annum. The lease expires on 21st October 2083

With 59 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £20,900 and £24,200 plus 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 are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

Do I cancel the direct debit for my mortgage with Santander once a completion date for my home sale in Wigston has been agreed?

No, you should maintain paying any mortgage sums to Santander until the mortgage is repaid out of the proceeds of sale as part of your Wigston conveyancing.
