Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Derby

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Derby costs more?

In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Derby and elsewhere usually necessitates more work compared to freehold transactions. This includes reviewing the lease, corresponding with the landlord about the service of appropriate notices, securing current service charge and management information, securing the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different owners have owned the lease since it was first granted.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Nationwide are being problematic. The Derby solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Nationwide are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Nationwide have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nationwide may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My sealed bid on a property in Derby has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have placed an offer on a property, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Derby. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Barclays started?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Derby conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your solicitor is on the Barclays approved list. Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of purchasers would apply for a home loan with Barclays and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Derby.
