My property lawyer in Kelsall has never been on on the Bank of Ireland Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to use my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the Bank of Ireland approved list?
The limited options available to you here include:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Kelsall solicitors but Bank of Ireland will need to use a solicitor on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the total conveyancing fees and cause delays.
- Find an alternative practitioner to to deal with the conveyancing, obviously checking they are Bank of Ireland approved.
- Try to convince your Bank of Ireland solicitor to attempt to join the Bank of Ireland panel
My wife and I are purchasing a house in Kelsall. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we will need to deposit funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
Is it the case that all Kelsall CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Lloyds conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
Some major lenders now use CQS as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their panels.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Kelsall lawyer having checked that they are on the Principality conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Kelsall surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
What are your top tips when it comes to finding a Kelsall conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?
When appointing a conveyancer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Kelsall conveyancing firm) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We advise that you speak with several firms including non Kelsall conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be helpful:
If they are not ALEP accredited then what is the reason? How many lease extensions have they conducted in Kelsall in the last twenty four months?
I am the registered owner of a 1 bedroom flat in Kelsall, conveyancing was carried out August 2000. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in Kelsall with a long lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 per annum. The lease expires on 21st October 2081
With only 58 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £22,800 and £26,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
We have had DIP from Santander who indicated that they will lend up to £218k. When do we need to instruct a lawyer for conveyancing? Kelsall is where we plan to move to.
You can instruct a lawyer now and ask them to generate a file for you. This will enable: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memo to the relevant parties 2) the seller’s property lawyer to send out the draft contract. That being said, do not instruct your solicitor to order searches until you receive your valuation report via Santander and you are content to move forward.
