Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brighstone

My friend's step-father is a solicitor. I anticipate that I will be offered friends and family rates for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of fees should I be paying for conveyancing in Brighstone?

It’s sensible to request two or three conveyancing quotes. Do use our comparison tool on this page. Whilst charges will be different but service levels do are distinct between law firms as is the case with most professions.

We are purchasing a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Brighstone who is on the Skipton approved panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Skipton . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Brighstone.

We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Brighstone and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Brighstone. We have lived in Brighstone for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

What does commercial conveyancing in Brighstone cover?

Non domestic conveyancing in Brighstone incorporates a wide range of advice, provided by regulated solicitors, relating to business premises. For example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the assignment of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of tenancies.

Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Brighstone with the intention of speeding up the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Brighstone can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers as soon as your agents start advertising the property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ representatives.
  • If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should make sure that you are holding the original share document. Obtaining a new share certificate can be a lengthy formality and frustrates many a Brighstone conveyancing deal. Where a reissued share is needed, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if applicable) 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 marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as over as opposed to unsettled. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be advisable verify this via your lawyers. A buyer’s conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to where the remaining number of years is under 80 years. In the circumstances it is important at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale.

I inherited a 1 bedroom flat in Brighstone, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent flats in Brighstone with over 90 years remaining are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease expires on 21st October 2083

With just 64 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £14,300 and £16,400 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
