Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brynford

At what point does exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Brynford and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?

Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Brynford you are welcome to come in to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we work with offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the contract is not the critical part. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Brynford)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

My home in Brynford is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Will the lawyer have to be required to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Kent Reliance 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 conditions fairly frequently at the moment.

Various online forums that I have come across warn that are a common cause of obstruction in Brynford conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Brynford.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Brynford is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Brynford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Brynford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Brynford may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

There are only 62 years left on my lease in Brynford. I now wish to extend my lease but my landlord is missing. What should I do?

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the magistrate. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have made all reasonable attempts to track down the landlord. In some cases an enquiry agent may be useful to try and locate and to produce a report to be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor both on proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing Brynford.

I acquired a 2 bed flat in Brynford, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Brynford with over 90 years remaining are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2097

You have 75 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £8,600 and £9,800 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
