Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Nafferton

I happen to be the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Nafferton. The Nafferton property was put into my name in September. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in September. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause is principally there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

I am purchasing a property in Nafferton. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Coventry BS be concerned?

Given that your lender is Coventry BS your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions outlined in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease does not meet these specifications. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Nafferton.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Yorkshire BS are being pedantic. The Nafferton solicitor who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Yorkshire BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Yorkshire BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Yorkshire BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Yorkshire BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Frank (my husband) and I may need to let out our Nafferton ground floor flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Nafferton conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

The lease governs relations between the landlord and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will say if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in Nafferton do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. In most cases there is a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the tenancy agreement.

I inherited a ground floor flat in Nafferton, conveyancing having been completed in 2009. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Nafferton with a long lease are worth £185,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2081

You have 60 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £20,000 and £23,000 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should 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.

Should one as executor remove a departed person's name from the title register for a property in Nafferton?

Where a Nafferton property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors dies, the name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to remove their name as in the event of a sale you would simply need to evidence as to the reason the co owner is missing from the contract, such as a grant of probate.

With a view to making the sale conveyancing more straight forward for the sale of the property you may apply to have the deceased person erased from the title entries by applying to the land registry with evidence of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
