As someone clueless as to conveyancing in Anlaby what is your top tip you can impart for the ownership transfer in Anlaby

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Anlaby or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the seller, estate agent and on occasion a lender. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Anlaby should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the legal process whose responsibility is to look after your best interests and to keep you safe.

Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. As an example, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your solicitor is slow. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do something that is contrary to your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.

I have paid off my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a Anlaby property lawyer on the Clydesdale panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Clydesdale mortgage has been paid off.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Anlaby I like with open areas and station nearby, however it only has 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Anlaby for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Anlaby with the purpose of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Anlaby can be bypassed where you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation which will be required by the purchasers’ conveyancers.
  • If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s permission? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Anlaby leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or addition of wooden flooring require a licence from the Landlord consenting to such works. If you dont have the approvals in place you should not contact the landlord without contacting your solicitor in advance. Some Anlaby leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. The majority of freeholders or Management Companies in Anlaby levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold property. You or your lawyers should discover the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack can be applied for on or before finding a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most common cause of delay in leasehold conveyancing in Anlaby.
