Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crediton

I have justbeen informed that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Crediton for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest way to check if the premises is in your name, you can carry out 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 Crediton conveyancing specialists.

We're new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we appoint their chosen lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Crediton

We suspect that the owner is not behind this ultimatum. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Crediton conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.

If all goes to plan we aim to complete our sale of a £175,000 garden flat in Crediton next week. The management company has quoted £420 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a flat conveyance in Crediton?

For the majority of leasehold sales in Crediton conveyancing will involve, queries regarding the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Answering pre-exchange questions Where consent is required before sale in Crediton Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Crediton leasehold premises is £350. For Crediton conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to supply the information.

I inherited a basement flat in Crediton, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable properties in Crediton with an extended lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2081

With just 60 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £20,000 and £23,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.

My wife and I are in the market for a value for money conveyancing lawyer in Crediton to help me sell my apartment. I I am fearful of being overcharged but with various Crediton conveyancing practices to pick from...who's the best?
