I hired a high street solicitor for our conveyancing in Browns Green recently. After carefully reading the Terms I noteI am liable for fees even where the transaction does not complete. Would I be best advised to choose a web based firm offering no move no charge conveyancing in Browns Green?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise the transactions that fail to complete.

Me and my partner are buying a flat in Browns Green. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? At some point we will need to deposit funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

When it comes to lenders such as Lloyds, do Browns Green property lawyers have to pay a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Browns Green building society branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Browns Green conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the solicitor is on the mortgage company panel, they must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Browns Green benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I’m about to sell my garden flat in Browns Green. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have recently received a yearly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?

It best that you discharge the service charge as normal given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I invested in buying a 1st floor flat in Browns Green, conveyancing formalities finalised September 1997. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar properties in Browns Green with a long lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2080

With only 61 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £19,000 and £22,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
