My lawyer has informed me that missing deeds insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Chapel En Le Frith conveyancing?
The right level of missing deeds indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and Chelsea Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
I have paid off my mortgage with TSB. I assume I don't need a Chapel En Le Frith solicitor on the TSB panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your TSB mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the TSB mortgage from the register. TSB, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where TSB has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- TSB has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Chapel En Le Frith solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Chapel En Le Frith surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Various online forums that I have frequented warn that are the number one cause of stalling in Chapel En Le Frith house deals. Is this right?

Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Chapel En Le Frith.

I’m about to sell my basement apartment in Chapel En Le Frith. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just had a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as normal because all rents 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 bought a split level flat in Chapel En Le Frith, conveyancing having been completed in 2010. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease?

With only 62 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £17,100 and £19,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
