My offer was accepted on an apartment in High Wycombe on 2/6/2021, valuation was booked 2 days later, all came back fine. Conveyancer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Skipton and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Are Skipton entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Nationwide have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a apartment in High Wycombe has been agreed to, what happens next?
The property agent will want to be advised as to your conveyancing practitioner's details (make sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s panel). Contact Nationwide or your financial adviser and finish off any relevant paperwork. Nationwide will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in High Wycombe.
After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in High Wycombe agreed to, the sellers do however have an associated purchase. The vendors have placed an offer on somewhere, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in High Wycombe. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Leeds Building Society?
It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, High Wycombe conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society approved list. Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market many purchasers would apply for a home loan with Leeds Building Society and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in High Wycombe 10 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be evidenced by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is easy to conduct a search at the Land Registry, locate your property and obtain current copies of the property title for less than a fiver. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for twenty pounds.
Back In 2000, I bought a leasehold house in High Wycombe. Conveyancing and Nottingham Building Society mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing solicitor in High Wycombe who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?
The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a High Wycombe conveyancing solicitor to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
I invested in buying a 1st floor flat in High Wycombe, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2003. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding properties in High Wycombe with a long lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2086
With only 65 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £13,300 and £15,400 plus costs.
The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
