IfI was to acquire a simple residential homein Louth mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Louth?

Any savings you would gain would be limited to the costs for searches.

As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Louth what is the number one tip you can impart for the home moving process in Louth

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Louth or throughout Lincolnshire is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for friction between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. E.g., the vendor, property agent and on occasion the bank. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Louth is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the process whose responsibility is to look after your best interests and to keep you safe.

On occasion a third party with a vested interest may attempt to convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. As an example, the estate agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your solicitor is wrong. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - agreed a price, but the agent advised that the owners will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's recommended solicitors as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Louth

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this request. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is counter productive. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Louth conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will give their estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £300,000 garden flat in Louth in just under a week. The landlords agents has quoted £396 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and 3 years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Louth?

Louth conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes ordinarily necessitates administration charges raised by management companies :

    Answering pre-exchange questions Where consent is required before sale in Louth Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Louth leasehold property is £350. For Louth conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to provide answers.

I invested in buying a split level flat in Louth, conveyancing having been completed 5 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar properties in Louth with a long lease are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2082

You have 63 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £16,200 and £18,600 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
