At what point will exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Gilberdyke and am I required to attend the lawyers office?
If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Gilberdyke you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the property agreement is not the critical part. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Gilberdyke)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
The Gilberdyke conveyancing solicitors that just started acting on my house acquisition in Gilberdyke have without warning shut down. I chose them because I needed a lawyer on the Santander conveyancing panel and my family Gilberdyke lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What are my options?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Santander conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to help.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Gilberdyke. Conveyancing is daunting 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 legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Gilberdyke
Please supply a car parking plan. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agency in Gilberdyke where we have experienced a few flat sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Gilberdyke conveyancing solicitors. Could you shed some light as to whether the vendor of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the buyer?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is 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 before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
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 purchaser.
I invested in buying a studio flat in Gilberdyke, conveyancing formalities finalised August 2006. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Gilberdyke with an extended lease are worth £265,000. The ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease runs out on 21st October 2098
With 76 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus costs.
