AssumingI were to buy a simple residential homein Lees and Moorside for cash and have no survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Lees and Moorside?
Any savings you would achieve would be isolated to the costs for searches. A conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the sellers property lawyer, stamp duty submission, register the title etc. A marginal saving might be made by not having to register a charge but it will not be meaningful.
I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel lawyer as I would prefer to appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Lees and Moorside?
Do check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel conveyancers where you accept the "fee-free" deal. Contact the lender and ask if they offer you a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Lees and Moorside.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Lees and Moorside I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Lees and Moorside in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
I need to change lawyers as my Lees and Moorside lawyer is not on the mortgage company's panel of conveyancing solicitors. Is it practical to instruct different lawyers?
In the event that you have not formally instructed a conveyancer to commence the conveyancing and have just received quotes, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Lees and Moorside that you're considering.
