We previously appointed conveyancing lawyers based in Aldershot on the TSB solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental charge for handling the TSB mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by TSB?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by TSB but by your Aldershot conveyancing practitioner. Numerous firms on the TSB panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Aldershot. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Barclays have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As your lender is Barclays your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements outlined in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Barclays. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Barclays where a lease fails to comply with these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Aldershot.

At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Aldershot accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Aldershot. What do I do now? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Aldershot conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent stages this very much depends on the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market many buyers would apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their property lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Aldershot.

    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. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

My company is planning to lease a unit on a shopping parade. Can you recommend solicitors offering no-move-no fees for commercial conveyancing in Aldershot for less than 2k?

Why do Aldershot conveyancing charges are higher for leasehold and freehold properties?

Inevitably there is increased work required in leasehold conveyancing. Aldershot has many leasehold properties. There is more paperwork involved in the purchase: for example, the lease and leasehold information (including current service charge, ground rent and buildings insurance details) obtained from the freeholder or managing agents. There are strict criteria that the lease must meet in order to be acceptable to a mortgage company. If it does not meet these requirements, the lease must be amended, which can involve additional expense for the seller.
