Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bridlington

Me and my fiance are purchasing an apartment in Bridlington. My Conveyancer has never been on on the bank conveyancing list. Is it possible for me to retain my Bridlington conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender approved list?

One will need to appoint a conveyancer to deal with the formalities if you take out a loan to buy your home. The solicitor will carry out all the relevant legal checks on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is in place. You could appoint a Bridlington solicitor of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the property lawyer selected is not on the mortgage company approved list further costs will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not previously applied for membership they can do so.

My lawyer has discovered a a legal deficiency with the lease for the property we are buying in Bridlington. The seller’s lawyers have put forward defective title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our solicitor says that he must check that the lender is willing to move forward with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the mortgage company ?

Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. You and the mortgage company are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.

Can I be sure that the Bridlington conveyancing solicitor on the Principality panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Bridlington seeking recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your transaction.

My wife and I have organised a further advance on our mortgage from Virgin Money as we want to carry out renovations to our house in Bridlington. Are we obliged to select a local Bridlington solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

Virgin Money don't usually require a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.

I've digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Bridlington solicitor - who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Coventry BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Coventry BS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Bridlington postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Coventry BS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Bridlington.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my grandmother I am selling a house in Monmouth but reside in Bridlington. My lawyer (approximately 260 miles from mehas requested that I sign a stat dec ahead of completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Bridlington to attest and place their company stamp on the document?

Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Bridlington based

I only have 68 years remaining on my flat in Bridlington. I now wish to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What should I do?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you have made all reasonable attempts to locate the freeholder. On the whole a specialist should be helpful to try and locate and to produce a report to be used as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer in relation to investigating the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Bridlington.

I acquired a 1st floor flat in Bridlington, conveyancing was carried out in 1996. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Bridlington with an extended lease are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2104

With only 80 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures 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.
