Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brislington

Our son-in-law is about to exchange on a house that has just been built in Brislington with a home loan from RBS. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the RBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the RBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

My house in Brislington is up for sale and I have a buyer. Will the conveyancing practitioner have to be required to be on the Principality conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Principality conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently at the moment.

My friend suggested that where I am purchasing in Brislington I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is sometimes included in the estimate for your Brislington conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out important information about Brislington around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Brislington Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Brislington.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Brislington I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Brislington in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

Your lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Brislington leasehold property is £350. For Brislington conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to supply the information.

I purchased a 2 bed flat in Brislington, conveyancing formalities finalised October 2002. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Brislington with an extended lease are worth £227,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2094

With just 72 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
