Finally, a loan agreement from NatWest for the remortgage of my 3 bedroom flat is to be issued imminently. Are you able to put forward a cheap conveyancing practitioner in Holmes Chapel?
You have come to the wrong place to search for the cheapest conveyancing in Holmes Chapel. We can offer you cost effective conveyancing but we do not advertise as being the cheapest. Resist the temptation to appoint companies offering the bait of £100 conveyancing in Holmes Chapel. Optimistically, in deciding on cheap conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst you will end up invoiced for additional fees and still not receive the service you were hoping for.
Are the Holmes Chapel conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Coventry BS?

If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Holmes Chapel what would it be?
Do not opt for the cheapest Holmes Chapel conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. 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 advance.
I am expecting a OIP from TSB this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do TSB recommend any Holmes Chapel solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Holmes Chapel solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the TSB conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and TSB through the process.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Holmes Chapel. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
I am a negotiator for a busy estate agency in Holmes Chapel where we have experienced a number of flat sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Holmes Chapel conveyancing solicitors. Could you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

Are there any major works in the planning that will likely increase the maintenance costs? The best form of lease arrangement is where the freehold title is in the ownership of the leaseholders. In this arrangement the leaseholders benefit from control and notwithstanding that a managing agent is frequently retained if the building is bigger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves.
