Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Hainault conveyancing practitioners were appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Yorkshire BS?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Yorkshire BS done the valuation? Have you informed Yorkshire BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Hainault. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Virgin Money have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Virgin Money your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Virgin Money. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Virgin Money where a lease fails to satisfy these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Hainault.
I have finally had an offer on a flat in Hainault accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a property, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Hainault. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Aldermore going?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Hainault conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your property lawyer is on the Aldermore approved list. Regarding the next steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of buyers will apply for the mortgage with Aldermore and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to press on with the conveyancing in Hainault.

What advice can you give us when it comes to appointing a Hainault conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?
If you are instructing a conveyancer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Hainault conveyancing firm) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you speak with two or three firms including non Hainault conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be helpful:
What volume of lease extensions have they conducted in Hainault in the last 12 months? If the firm is not ALEP accredited then what is the reason?
Having spent years of dialogue we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Hainault. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
Where there is a missing freeholder or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the premium.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Hainault property is 201 & 201a St. Barnabas Road in October 2013. The Tribunal decided that the price to be paid by the Applicants for the freehold interest is £20,071. This case was in relation to 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 69.26 years.
We are in the process of purchasing a apartment in Hainault. Can the conveyancer keep the amount we are are buying for private from the likes of Zoopla. Is this achievable and how?
HMLR by statute are required to specify price sold information on the official title for domestic properties countrywide including homes in Hainault. The register of ownership is an open document, so the Land Registry would be breaking the law if they failed to allow access to the register.
You can make a request of the Land Registry to hide the price paid data but the response would be in the negative.
