Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from North Cave. I would like to know the understand why all North Cave conveyancers aren't included on all mortgage company panels?

A decade ago most banks had an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The FSA in 2010 instigated a thematic review into property fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the lawyers on your panel. Consequently, mortgage companies have subsequently looked to extract more data from law firms about their operations and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Many firms have found themselves excluded 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 meet the minimum volume of transactions the lenders insisted on.

My husband and I are nearing an exchange on a house in North Cave and my parents have sent the ten percent deposit to my solicitor. I am now informed that as the deposit has not arrived from me my conveyancing practitioner needs to disclose this to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for this now to delay the deal?

Your property lawyer is obliged to clarify with lender to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

At what point will exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in North Cave and do I need to be at the solicitors office?

Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in North Cave you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with offer a national conveyancing service and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in North Cave)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

My father-in-law has encouraged me to appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in North Cave. Should I find my own solicitor?

No doubt the ideal way to select a conveyancing solicitor is to seek feedback from friends or relatives who have actually experience in using the conveyancer you're contemplating using.

Back In 2005, I bought a leasehold flat in North Cave. Conveyancing and National Westminster Bank mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in North Cave who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?

First contact the Land Registry to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. There is no need to incur the fees of a North Cave conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I own a 1 bedroom flat in North Cave, conveyancing having been completed in 1996. How much will my lease extension cost? Similar flats in North Cave with a long lease are worth £175,000. The ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2080

With 58 years unexpired the likely cost is going to span between £23,800 and £27,400 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
