My financial adviser requires my Anlaby lawyer’ panel member for the Nat West conveyancing panel. How do I discover this. I have called my local Anlaby branch but they have not got back to me yet.
You are best placed to get this information from your Anlaby property lawyer . Most Anlaby law firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.
I completed on my house on 3 January and the transaction details are still not registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Anlaby expressed confidence that it should be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Anlaby particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Anlaby is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the property so registration formalities is not usually primary concern but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Anlaby I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Anlaby in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
What advice can you give us when it comes to appointing a Anlaby conveyancing firm to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?
When appointing a property lawyer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Anlaby conveyancing firm) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We suggest that you speak with two or three firms including non Anlaby conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be useful:
If the firm is not ALEP accredited then why not? How familiar is the practice with lease extension legislation?

How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their service charge payments?

I pay a maintenance contribution for my ground floor flat in Anlaby. Due to losing my job and other issues I fell into arrears with remittance. The freeholders agreed a clearance plan but there remains a couple of left in arrears.
I am under pressure to sell and I am worried this can hold me back if I have to settle the arrears first. I'd like to sell up and subsequently repay the debt from the proceeds - is this practicable?
Do speak with the conveyancer undertaking your Anlaby conveyancing but it might be possible to arrange for the debt to be attributed to the buyers. The contractual price they pay would be reduced to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They could then deal with the fees once they are the owners.
