As someone not used to the Castle Eden conveyancing process what’s the number one tip you can give me concerning the home moving process in Castle Eden

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Castle Eden and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for conflict between you and others involved in the transaction. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and on occasion a bank. Choosing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Castle Eden is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the process whose role it is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.

There is a distinct increase in the "blame" culture- someone has to be at fault for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you must always trust your lawyer ahead of the other players when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

I am buying a new build house in Castle Eden with a mortgage from Santander. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could adversely affect my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent has warned us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we appoint the agent's chosen solicitors as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Castle Eden

It is improbable the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is counter productive. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to use your preferred Castle Eden conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will give their estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to finding a Castle Eden conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a property lawyer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Castle Eden conveyancing practice) it is essential that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We recommend that you talk with two or three firms including non Castle Eden conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be of use:

    If they are not ALEP accredited then why not? Can they put you in touch with clients in Castle Eden who can give a testimonial?

I inherited a garden flat in Castle Eden, conveyancing having been completed 8 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding flats in Castle Eden with over 90 years remaining are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2102

With just 80 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 plus 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 are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
