Can you help? My Battlesbridge conveyancer is informing me me that he has toorder Battlesbridge conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. These Battlesbridge searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a mortgage company your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Battlesbridge conveyancing searches.

My fiance and I intend to purchase a newbuild apartment in Battlesbridge with a mortgage from Bank of Scotland.We have a Battlesbridge conveyancing solicitor but Bank of Scotland informed us she’s not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Bank of Scotland panel lawyer or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The home loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that solicitors will be on the Bank of Scotland conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Bank of Scotland

I own a leasehold house in Battlesbridge. Conveyancing and Virgin Money mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing solicitor in Battlesbridge who previously acted has long since retired. What should I do?

First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Battlesbridge conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I bought a 1st floor flat in Battlesbridge, conveyancing formalities finalised May 1996. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding flats in Battlesbridge with a long lease are worth £222,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2093

With just 71 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

My conveyancing in Battlesbridge is set to complete next Friday, however the couple I am purchasing from wants to vacate the next day at midday. Can I accept such a plan?

Where you need a bank loan then your conveyancer will require that you have vacant possession on Friday - the bank will compel it.
