Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Yate

I am buying property in Yate. My Solicitor is not listed on the bank approved panel. Is it possible for me to appoint my Yate conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender list of approved lawyers?

You will need to instruct a lawyer to complete the legal work required if you need a loan to buy your property. The conveyancing practitioner will conduct all the relevant legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is dealt with. You may instruct a Yate conveyancer of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the lawyer selected is not a member of the mortgage company approved list additional fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so provided your solicitor has not historically applied for membership they should do so.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Yate and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Yate conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a web based conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Yate. Having lived in Yate for six years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Yate. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Yate

    Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

How do I locate a Yate law firm on the Coventry Building Society conveyancing panel? I have wheels and am happy to travel upto 20miles to meet the solicitor.

Feel free to make use of the facility on this website. Please select a lender and your location and you will see a number of Yate conveyancing lawyers locally. We have detailed some Yate conveyancing firms towards the end of this page and you can ring them to verify whether they are on the Coventry Building Society approved list

Am I better off to instruct a Yate conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can perform the legal work however they are based approximately 350kilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Yate conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who used your friend and the majority were impressed that should trump using an unfamiliar Yate conveyancing solicitor just because they are local.

I work for a busy estate agency in Yate where we see a few leasehold sales derailed due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Yate conveyancing solicitors. Please can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible 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.

I own a studio flat in Yate, conveyancing was carried out 8 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding properties in Yate with over 90 years remaining are worth £265,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2100

With only 76 years remaining on your lease 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.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
