I am purchasing a property mortgage free in Flint Mountain. I have been residing for the previous twelve years in Flint Mountain. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a mortgage, then almost all of the Flint Mountain conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to do this. Do take into account; if you are intend to sell the house at a future date, it will likely be be of interest to your future buyer what the searches disclose. There are plenty of instances where premises with day to day issues can still show up negative search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Flint Mountain will be able to give you some sensible advice concerning this.
It is 10 years ago since I purchased my home in Flint Mountain. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been instructed on the sale but I can't locate my title deeds. Is this a problem?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be with the lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who handled the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Flint Mountain relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
A colleague pointed out to me me that in purchasing a property in Flint Mountain there may be a number of restrictions prohibiting external alterations to a property. Is this right?
We are aware of anumerous of properties in Flint Mountain which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to perform external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Flint Mountain should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
We previously appointed solicitors locally in Flint Mountain on the Leeds Building Society solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further amount for dealing with the Leeds Building Society mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Leeds Building Society?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor can levy a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Leeds Building Society but by your Flint Mountain conveyancing practitioner. Some firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Flint Mountain conveyancing lawyers were selected. How long does it take for UBS to forward the offer to the property lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have UBS conducted the valuation? Have you advised UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Flint Mountain. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared.

Are there common deficiencies that you witness in leases for Flint Mountain properties?
Leasehold conveyancing in Flint Mountain is not unique. All leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain clauses are wrong. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:
Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the building A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.
You could encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Halifax, Bank of Scotland, and Godiva Mortgages Ltd all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, obliging the buyer to pull out.
I own a ground floor flat in Flint Mountain, conveyancing having been completed 5 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent properties in Flint Mountain with an extended lease are worth £227,000. The ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2092
With only 72 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 plus professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
