The Hambleton conveyancing firm handling our Hambleton conveyancing has discovered a difference between the information in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor informs me that he must check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s course or action appropriate?
Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
2 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Hambleton completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Am I best advised to use a Hambleton conveyancing solicitor based in the area that I am buying? We have a good friend who can conduct the legal work but his firm is located a couple of hundredkilometers away.
The benefit of a local Hambleton conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to sign documents, present your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were content that should trump using an unknown Hambleton conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Hambleton based.
I am intending to sublet my leasehold flat in Hambleton. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?
The lease governs the relationship between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Hambleton do not prevent an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would adversely affect the market value the flat. In most cases there is a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.
I inherited a 1st floor flat in Hambleton, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable properties in Hambleton with over 90 years remaining are worth £185,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2079
With just 60 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as legals.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
