My best friend’s dad is a conveyancer. I anticipate that I'll be able to get mate’s rates for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of figure would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Lincolnshire?
Do contrast pricing. Make use of our search tool on this page. You will notice that amounts do be different but the service one can expect differ between conveyancers as is true with most professions.
My aunt passed away six months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Lincolnshire. The house had a small mortgage remaining of approximately £4500. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Nationwide, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?
If you plan to re-mortgage then Nationwide will insist on your using a conveyancer on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Nationwide mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Lincolnshire I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Lincolnshire for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
Taking into account that I will soon part with over three hundred thousand on a two bedroom apartment in Lincolnshire I wish to have a conversation with the solicitor about myhome move prior to appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?
