Can the conveyancing practitioners identified through your search tool conduct auction conveyancing in Milton Keynes?

There are a few auction solicitors we can put you in touch with those specialising in auction conveyancing. Milton Keynes is just one of our areas of in which our lawyers have a presence.

This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Milton Keynes. Do I receive the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Milton Keynes?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be called to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Milton Keynes. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Milton Keynes solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.

Our sealed bid on a house in Milton Keynes has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have placed an offer on somewhere, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Milton Keynes. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Bank of Ireland started?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Milton Keynes conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to check that your solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much depends on the specifics of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with Bank of Ireland and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to move forward with searches.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Milton Keynes. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Milton Keynes

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please supply a car parking plan. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Milton Keynes. I've stumble upon a site which appears to be the perfect solution If there is a chance to get all this stuff done via phone that would be ideal. Do I need to be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

I have recently realised that I have 72 years unexpired on my flat in Milton Keynes. I need to get lease extension but my landlord is absent. What should I do?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you or your lawyers have made all reasonable attempts to locate the freeholder. For most situations a specialist should be useful to carry out a search and prepare a report to be used as proof that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer in relation to investigating the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Milton Keynes.

I inherited a leasehold flat in Milton Keynes, conveyancing having been completed 3 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent flats in Milton Keynes with a long lease are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2081

With only 62 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £17,100 and £19,800 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
