Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Grinstead

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in East Grinstead is not on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s work?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the East Grinstead conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

The primary upside of using a local East Grinstead conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local East Grinstead know how is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and they were impressed that should trump using an unfamiliar East Grinstead conveyancing lawyer just because they are East Grinstead based.

Helen (my wife) and I may need to sub-let our East Grinstead basement flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We used a East Grinstead conveyancing firm in 2001 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in East Grinstead do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I acquired a 1st floor flat in East Grinstead, conveyancing was carried out 4 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Similar properties in East Grinstead with over 90 years remaining are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2087

With just 68 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
