Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Yorkshire

I selected a local firm for my conveyancing in East Yorkshire recently. After carefully reading the Terms it is apparent thatwe are responsible for fees even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and instruct a web based lawyer promising no move no charge conveyancing in East Yorkshire?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to cover the conveyances that do not go ahead. Also remember that such arrangements generally do not protect you from expenses for example East Yorkshire conveyancing search charges.

How up to date is your database of East Yorkshire solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel? Do RBS send you an updated list?

East Yorkshire conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the RBS conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from RBS directly.

What happens if my solicitor is removed from the UBS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in East Yorkshire?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

What can a local search inform me about the property I am purchasing in East Yorkshire?

East Yorkshire conveyancing often starts with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search company for example Searches UK The local search is essential in every East Yorkshire conveyancing purchase; as long as you wish to avoid any unpleasant surprises after you move into your new home. The search will supply data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject sections.

I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agency in East Yorkshire where we have experienced a number of flat sales derailed due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given inconsistent advice from local East Yorkshire conveyancing solicitors. Please can you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

I bought a basement flat in East Yorkshire, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar flats in East Yorkshire with an extended lease are worth £206,000. The ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2090

With only 66 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £12,400 and £14,200 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
