Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Leegomery

There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Leegomery but how do I know who's good?

Do not opt for the lowest Leegomery conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. 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 go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

We are getting the release of further funds on our home loan from Principality as we want to carry out renovations to our property in Leegomery. Are we obliged to appoint a nearby Leegomery solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

Principality do not ordinarily appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Principality panel.

I have a mortgage with TSB for my property in Leegomery. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform TSB?

Your original mortgage agreement with TSB will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of TSB’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact TSB directly. You need not do this via a TSB conveyancing panel lawyer.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Leegomery. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

If the lease is registered - and most are in Leegomery - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details 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 purchased a studio flat in Leegomery, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable flats in Leegomery with a long lease are worth £211,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2086

With just 67 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £10,500 and £12,000 plus costs.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns 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.

I am an executor of my recently deceased aunt’s Will, with a property in Leegomery which will be sold. The bungalow has never been registered at HMLR and I'm advised that some buyers solicitors will insist that it is in place before they'll proceed. What's the procedure for this?

In the situation that you have set out it seems advisable to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. The Land Registry’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
