Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Heanor

Is there a search tool that I can use to discover of the solicitor handling my conveyancing in Heanor is on the bank’sconveyancing panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Britannia thus spending £187.00 plus VAT in additional legal invoice.

You should make the most of the search tool on this site. Pick the lender and type ‘Heanor’ or your location and you will see numerous conveyancers based in Heanor or near you.

There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Heanor but how do I know who I should use?

It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Heanor conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

We expect to receive a AIP from TSB this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do TSB recommend any Heanor solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Heanor solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the TSB conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and TSB through the process.

Intending to buy a flat in Heanor. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Heanor solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.

My wife and I are downsizing from our property in Heanor 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 used a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Heanor. Having lived in Heanor for many years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must 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 health insurance to cover that same illness)

My wife and I purchased a semi-detached Victorian property in Heanor. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Heanor and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Heanor I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Heanor in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
