Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cambourne

I have todaydiscovered that Stirling Law have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Cambourne for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest way to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Cambourne conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Cambourne differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Cambourne come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Cambourne usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Cambourne or who has acted in the same development.

Is it simple use the search tool to locate a conveyancing lawyer in Cambourne on the panel for my bank?

Step one is to pick a bank such as Birmingham Midshires, Virgin Money or Godiva Mortgages Ltd then specify your preferred area e.g. Cambourne. Conveyancing firms in Cambourne and nationally should be listed.

No doubt it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing practitioner is to get feedback from friends or family who have actually experience in using the solicitor that you are contemplating using.

I have just started marketing my 2 bed flat in Cambourne. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the invoice as you normally would because all ground rent and service invoices should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser 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 2 bed flat in Cambourne, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2011. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Cambourne with a long lease are worth £191,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2078

With 54 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £32,300 and £37,400 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure 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 investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
