Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bamber Bridge

My grandson is buying a house that has just been built in Bamber Bridge with a mortgage from Santander. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Santander conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Santander conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

In relation to leasehold conveyancing in Bamber Bridge what are the most common lease problems?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Bamber Bridge. All leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the property A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.

A defective lease can cause problems when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Santander, Skipton Building Society, and Alliance & Leicester all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the purchaser to pull out.

I own a split level flat in Bamber Bridge, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2003. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding properties in Bamber Bridge with over 90 years remaining are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2080

With just 62 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £17,100 and £19,800 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
