Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Meir

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Meir. What is the rationale as to why all Meir conveyancers are not on all lender panels?

A decade ago most mortgage companies displayed an approach to risk which is different from today. The FSA in 2010 instigated a thematic review into mortgage fraud which concluded: know the lawyers on your panel. As a result, banks have since soughtmore information from law firms regarding their operations and the individuals who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Thousands of firms have been removed from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy disciplinary record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to satisfy the criteria of amount of transactions the lenders insisted on.

I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (seven years old) in Meir. The vast majority the flats have already been sold. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Meir?

A big part of the Meir conveyancing process is the conveyancing searches. There are numerous search providers who offer Meir conveyancing searches, as well direct from the local authority. These are generally termed personal search providers due to them carrying out, personal searches. However, all Local Authority Search conveyancing products have one thing in common - they must obtain their data from the local authority.

Just acquired a terraced house in Meir , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My Meir conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure that my name is registered.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Meir registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any interested persons or bodies. Currently roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the buyer has moved in to the property so 'speed' is not always top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Meir is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Meir are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Meir you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Meir may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

My fiance and I may need to sub-let our Meir ground floor flat for a while due to a new job. We instructed a Meir conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

Even though your previous Meir conveyancing lawyer is not around you can check your lease to check if you are permitted to let out the premises. The rule is that if the lease is non-specific, subletting is permitted. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you need to seek permission via your landlord or other appropriate person prior to subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet without prior consent. Such consent must not not be unreasonably withheld. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.

I bought a 1st floor flat in Meir, conveyancing was carried out in 2006. 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? Corresponding flats in Meir with a long lease are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2085

You have 66 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £12,400 and £14,200 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
