Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ilfracombe

I am buying a flat in Ilfracombe. My Conveyancer is not listed on the mortgage company conveyancing list. Is it possible for me to retain my Ilfracombe conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender list of approved lawyers?

You have a number of options available to you here

  • Carry on with your preferred Ilfracombe solicitor but your bank will undoubtedly instruct a conveyancer from their approved list. The net result is additional fees and probable frustration.
  • Get a fresh solicitor to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your solicitor to apply to join the bank panel

It is a dozen years since I bought my property in Ilfracombe. Conveyancing solicitors have now been retained on the sale but I can't track down my deeds. Will this cause complications?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Ilfracombe relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Ilfracombe benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the extras as it may adversely affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Taking into account that I am about to part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a house in Ilfracombe I would like to have a conversation with the lawyer about myhome move prior to instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

Absolutely - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor due to be conducting your conveyancing in Ilfracombe.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique person, not a case number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are provided with for residential conveyancing in Ilfracombe should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Ilfracombe. Before diving in I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Ilfracombe - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I inherited a studio flat in Ilfracombe, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Ilfracombe with over 90 years remaining are worth £265,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2100

You have 76 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
