Completed the sale of my flat in Cudworth last May but my buyer keeps Skype messaging daily complaining that her lawyer is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?
Post completion of your disposal your conveyancer should forward the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. Where relevant, your lawyer should also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the buyers lawyers. There are no post completion requirements just for conveyancing in Cudworth.
I am buying my first flat in Cudworth benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my solicitor about this side-deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with Bank of Scotland. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only Fifty years unexpired on my lease in Cudworth. I am keen to extend my lease but my landlord is can not be found. What are my options?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to locate the landlord. In some cases a specialist should be useful to conduct investigations and prepare an expert document which can be used as proof that the landlord is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor both on devolving into the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Cudworth.
I acquired a basement flat in Cudworth, conveyancing was carried out in 2009. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar properties in Cudworth with a long lease are worth £192,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2072
With 54 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £32,300 and £37,400 as well as legals.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
My partner and I are buying a garden flat in Cudworth. At the time of instructing our lawyer, they told us that they were on all major UK bank panels. The financial adviser contacted us just now to say that they are not on the Bank of Ireland approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Do we just choose a different lawyer that is on their panel or do we pay for separate representation, with Bank of Ireland selecting their own approved property lawyer.
When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the purchaser’s solicitors to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the solicitor to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the property lawyer has to meet. Some lenders now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should call Bank of Ireland and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on Bank of Ireland's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Cudworth lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the equation.
