Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bradley Stoke

The Bradley Stoke conveyancing firm handling our Bradley Stoke conveyancing has identified a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer informs me that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s stance appropriate?

Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

The deeds to my home are lost. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Bradley Stoke 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?

You no longer need to have the physical official documentation to establish that you own the land or property, as the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.

My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent told us that the owners will only issue a contract if we appoint the agent's recommended solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Bradley Stoke

It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to instruct your preferred Bradley Stoke conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will give their estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing targets set by head office.

What are your top tips when it comes to appointing a Bradley Stoke conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Bradley Stoke conveyancing firm) it is essential that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you speak with two or three firms including non Bradley Stoke conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be of use:

    If the firm is not ALEP accredited then what is the reason? What are the legal fees for lease extension conveyancing?

I purchased a split level flat in Bradley Stoke, conveyancing having been completed in 2000. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Bradley Stoke with over 90 years remaining are worth £181,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2075

You have 51 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £30,400 and £35,200 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
