Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Beeston

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Beeston. What is the rationale as to why all Beeston conveyancers are not on all mortgage company panels?

A decade ago most lenders displayed an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The FSA in 2010 conducted a thematic review into mortgage fraud which concluded: know the lawyers on your panel. Accordingly, mortgage companies have since soughtmore information from law firms regarding their operations and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Many law practices have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy track record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to meet the minimum amount of transactions the lenders insisted on.

we are a couple who intend to purchase a newly converted apartment in Beeston with a homeloan from Clydesdale.We like our Beeston conveyancing practitioner but Clydesdale advised that she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint a Clydesdale panel firm or keep our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Clydesdale use our lawyer?

No, not really. The home loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that solicitors will be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Clydesdale

Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Beeston from the point of view of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Beeston can be avoided where you appoint lawyers the minute your agents start advertising the property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information needed by the purchasers’ conveyancers.
  • If you have the benefit of shareholding in the Management Company, you should ensure that you hold the original share certificate. Arranging a new share certificate can be a time consuming process and slows down many a Beeston conveyancing deal. If a reissued share is required, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this sooner rather than later. If you have had any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is very important that these are settled before the property is put on the market. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is a current dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of 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 clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as historic rather than unresolved. The majority of freeholders or Management Companies in Beeston levy fees for supplying management packs for a leasehold property. You or your lawyers should find out the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack can be applied for as soon as you have a buyer, thus reducing delays. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most frequent reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Beeston.

I bought a garden flat in Beeston, conveyancing was carried out 4 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Beeston with over 90 years remaining are worth £165,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease finishes on 21st October 2095

With only 77 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £7,600 and £8,800 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
