Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hanslope

I am planning to acquire a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Hanslope who is on the HSBC Bank approved. Can you recommend a local firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for HSBC Bank in certain locations such as Hanslope. We dont recommend any particular firm.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Hanslope and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Hanslope. Having lived in Hanslope for three years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

How does conveyancing in Hanslope differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Hanslope come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Hanslope typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Hanslope or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Hanslope. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I bought a leasehold flat in Hanslope, conveyancing having been completed 5 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding properties in Hanslope with an extended lease are worth £181,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2073

You have 51 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £30,400 and £35,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
