We are buying a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Acocks Green who is on the Lloyds approved 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 Lloyds . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Acocks Green.
I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Acocks Green. The Acocks Green property was put into my name in November. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in November. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Some mortgage companies would take a practical view as this obligation chiefly exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.
My wife and I have arranged a further advance on our home loan from Santander as we want to carry out renovations to our house in Acocks Green. Do we need to appoint a local Acocks Green solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Santander would not normally instruct a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander panel.
We expect to receive a DIP from Skipton this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Skipton recommend any Acocks Green solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Acocks Green solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Acocks Green. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Acocks Green
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. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. 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. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Acocks Green. Before diving in I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Acocks Green - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
Leasehold Conveyancing in Acocks Green - A selection of Questions you should consider before buying
What is the length of the lease? You should be aware if it is fewer than eighty years it will impact the marketability of the flat. Check with your mortgage company that they are content with residual term of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably require a lease extension at some point and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. For most Acocks Greenlease extensions you would need to own the property for a couple of years before you are eligible to extend the lease.
