My fiance’s uncle is a conveyancing practitioner. I expect that I'll be able to get mate’s pricing for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of costs would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Heaton Moor?
It’s sensible to look for multiple conveyancing quotes. Make use of our search tool on this page. The quotes may vary but the service one can expect differ between solicitors as is true with the vast majority of professional services.
Our conveyancer has uncovered a defect with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Heaton Moor. The seller’s lawyers have offered title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our solicitor has advised that he must be satisfied that the lender is happy with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the risk of a conflict of interest, you and the bank are the client. Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the lender can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your conveyancing practitioner will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

I am the registered owner of a garden flat in Heaton Moor, conveyancing having been completed in 1995. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Heaton Moor with over 90 years remaining are worth £222,000. The ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2090
With just 71 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as costs.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
I have been told by various family members that it may take 6-8 weeks for Heaton Moor conveyancing to complete.This was a month ago. The property information was only received to my property lawyer last week so does the clock start running now?
You should not bank on completing on a certain date until exchange of contracts occurs. Whatever assurances the people you are acquiring from or selling to make, or your estate agent provides don't count on them. More stress is caused to clients trying to move home by false promises than any other issue when it comes to conveyancing in Heaton Moor.
