We are about to complete on the purchase of a property in Hamworthy but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the vendor in the sum of six thousand pounds taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract but Barclays are not allowing this. Why were they approached?
Your property lawyer being on a Barclays conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Barclays of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to report the price change to Barclays then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Barclays and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Hamworthy.
Can you help - my lawyer advises that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Hamworthy conveyancing?
The right level of defective lease indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Barclays and Barnsley Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
I'm the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Hamworthy. The Hamworthy property was put into my name in November. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in November. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be impacted by that. many lenders would take a pragmatic view as this requirement chiefly exists to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
Lloyds have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a property in Hamworthy has been agreed to, now what?
The property agent will want to be informed of your lawyer's details (make sure the solicitors are on the lender’s approved list). Telephone Lloyds or the financial adviser and complete any appropriate documentation. Lloyds will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or owners to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight to get a mortgage offer. Lloyds will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Hamworthy.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Hamworthy I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hamworthy in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
