Having sold my house in Failsworth last December but our buyer keeps calling daily complaining that her conveyancer is waiting to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?
Following your disposal your lawyer should send the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. Depending on the transaction, your lawyer should also evidence that the mortgage has been repaid to the buyers conveyancers. There are no post completion requirements unique to conveyancing in Failsworth.
I am buying a new build house in Failsworth with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the side-deal as it would impact my loan with Nottingham Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
I am using a search engine for the phrase on line conveyancing in Failsworth it reveals numerous property lawyersin the vicinity. With so much choice what is the best way to find the suitable conveyancing solicitor for me?
The preferential way of finding the right conveyancer is via trusted recommendation, so ask friends and those you trust who have purchased a property in Failsworth or the respected estate agent or mortgage broker.

Be sure to seek confirmation that the fees are fixed.
I am a negotiator for a long established estate agency in Failsworth where we have witnessed a number of leasehold sales jeopardised as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received contradictory information from local Failsworth conveyancing firms. Please can you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord 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 inherited a garden flat in Failsworth, conveyancing having been completed in 2008. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Failsworth with over 90 years remaining are worth £197,000. The ground rent is £55 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2076
With just 55 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
My partner and I have an offer in principle from Platform Home Loans Ltd who have advised that they will lend up to £400k. When do I need to appoint a lawyer for conveyancing? Failsworth is where we are buying.
It would be wise to instruct a conveyancer now and ask them to create a file for you. This will trigger: 1) the selling agent to send out the Sales Memo to the relevant parties 2) the seller’s lawyer to submit the draft contract. However, do not ask your property lawyer to start searches until you have your valuation report via Platform Home Loans Ltd and you are content to move forward.
