There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Kirkby Stephen but how do I know who's good?

Do not opt for the lowest Kirkby Stephen conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay 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 ahead of time.

I'm the single recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Kirkby Stephen. The Kirkby Stephen property was put into my name in August. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in August. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this provision is primarily there to identify subsales or the flipping of properties.

Intending to buy a apartment in Kirkby Stephen. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Kirkby Stephen property lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel.

The deeds to our property are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?

As long as the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be held by HMLR under a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and secure up to date copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for £20 inclusive of VAT.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Kirkby Stephen I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Kirkby Stephen in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
