Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ashford Kent

I decided to go with a local lawyer for my conveyancing in Ashford Kent last week. Upon checking the official terms of business I notewe are liable for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I ditch them and select a web based solicitor practice promoting no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Ashford Kent?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to counteract those conveyances that do not proceed. Dont forget that such deals tend not to cover expenditure for example Ashford Kent conveyancing search expenses.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the house moving as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Ashford Kent. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Ashford Kent?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Ashford Kent. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.

I am planning to move property in May. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Ashford Kent. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across your site.

On the day of completion you can collect the house keys from your estate agent but this can only take place after the vendors conveyancers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be handed over. You should advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Ashford Kent or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Ashford Kent.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Ashford Kent bank branch on a couple of occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Ashford Kent conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Provided that the solicitor is on the lender approved list, they must follow the CML Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I'm converting the mortgage on my primary property to a BTL loan with Leeds Building Society and intend to use the remaining equity as a deposit on a second house. The location we are interested in is Ashford Kent. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of lenders and tie in the conveyances?

Make use of our comparison tool on this page to be sure that the conveyancers are approved by both lenders. Assuming that they are the lawyer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two deals but you should talk with you solicitor and make clear your expectations and requirements.

Frank (my husband) and I may need to let out our Ashford Kent 1st floor flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a Ashford Kent conveyancing practice in 2004 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

Some leases for properties in Ashford Kent do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I purchased a 2 bed flat in Ashford Kent, conveyancing having been completed in 2007. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar properties in Ashford Kent with over 90 years remaining are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 charged once a year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2077

With 58 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £21,900 and £25,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The loan agreement from a lender for the remortgage of my 2 bedroom maisonette is due by the end of next week. Are you able to suggest an efficient remortgage conveyancing lawyer in Ashford Kent ?
