Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Leicestershire

My Leicestershire lawyer has identified an inconsistency when comparing the information in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer says that he needs to ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s course or action appropriate?

Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

3 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Leicestershire took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Hoping to buy a property located in Leicestershire and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Leicestershire. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Leicestershire area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Leicestershire. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

Am I better off to use a Leicestershire conveyancing lawyer based in the location that I am hoping to buy? An old friend can conduct the conveyancing but her office is a couple of hundredmiles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Leicestershire conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign documents, present your ID and pester them where appropriate. Having local Leicestershire know how is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and in the main were content that should surpass using an unfamiliar Leicestershire conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being round the corner.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Leicestershire. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Leicestershire - 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 am the registered owner of a leasehold flat in Leicestershire, conveyancing formalities finalised in 1995. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Similar flats in Leicestershire with an extended lease are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £60 invoiced every year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2079

With just 57 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £28,500 and £33,000 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of 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 clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
