We note that you have a search directory listing solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I retain them for our conveyancing in Wolverton?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Wolverton.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Wolverton off the council. I have a mortgage offer with TSB. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel.

I have a mortgage with UBS for my property in Wolverton. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform UBS?

UBS must be informed of your intention prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that UBS will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact UBS directly. You need not do this via a UBS conveyancing panel solicitor.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Leeds Building Society. Is it usual for Leeds Building Society to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Wolverton is approved on their conveyancing panel? Leeds Building Society have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have been told that property searches are a common reason for obstruction in Wolverton conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Wolverton.

I have been recommended by numerous estate agents in Wolverton to get a quote from a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers ahead of a competitor’s?

We don’t offer any financial incentive for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I only have Sixty One years left on my lease in Wolverton. I now want to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What options are available to me?

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be lengthened by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to track down the landlord. On the whole an enquiry agent may be useful to conduct investigations and to produce an expert document to be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor both on proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Wolverton.

I am the registered owner of a ground floor flat in Wolverton, conveyancing was carried out December 2008. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar properties in Wolverton with a long lease are worth £211,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2090

With just 68 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus 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 advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

My mother and father are unable to locate their Wolverton property on the HM Land Registry site. They recall that fifty years ago when they bought the property there were complications regarding the address not being identified on some systems.

The vast majority of premises in Wolverton should appear. Have you endevoured to search to just the postcode. Normally it should disclose all the houses and flats within that postcode. Where registered it will show up with a title number. Where they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The property may still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title documentation which could be with your parent’s bank.
