I am expecting a AIP from Virgin Money this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

Nationwide will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or owners to arrange an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week to get a mortgage offer. Nationwide will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Barlborough.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Barlborough registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties.

Historically registration takes place once the buyer is living at the property so registration formalities is not usually primary concern but if 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 an expedited registration.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Barlborough with the purpose of speeding up the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Barlborough can be bypassed where you get in touch lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ representatives.
  • Some Barlborough leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet the yearly 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 service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their lawyers. Many freeholders or Management Companies in Barlborough charge for providing management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should find out the actual amount of the charges. The management pack can be applied for as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most common cause of delay in leasehold conveyancing in Barlborough. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are settled prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where a dispute is unresolved. You will have to accept that you will have to discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to present the dispute as over rather than unresolved.
