Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Pudsey

We hired a local solicitor for my conveyancing in Pudsey today. Going through the Ts and Cs I seewe are liable for costs even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or choose a web based conveyancing company who offer no completion no charge conveyancing in Pudsey?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be higher to offset the transactions that abort. You should be mindful that these deals generally do not cover outlay for instance Pudsey conveyancing search charges.

I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must leave my let out property in Pudsey by 21/1/2019. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in 5 weeks as I wish to avoid having to find short term accommodation?

The normal practice is not to serve notice on a rental unless exchange of contracts has taken place. If you have not already done so, update to your solicitor and request that they cajole the sellers side, try to an acceptable time-line that all parties will look to achieve

How does conveyancing in Pudsey differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Pudsey approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Pudsey tend to acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Pudsey or who has acted in the same development.

Given that I will soon part with over three hundred thousand on a garden flat in Pudsey I wish to have a conversation with the lawyer concerning thetransaction prior to appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer who will be conducting your property ownership legalities in Pudsey.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important person, not a file reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for residential conveyancing in Pudsey should be the figure that you are charged.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Pudsey with the intention of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Pudsey can be avoided if you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold documentation which will be required by the buyers’ conveyancers.
  • The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Pudsey levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold property. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most usual cause of delay in leasehold conveyancing in Pudsey. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Pudsey leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or laying down wooden flooring calls for a licence issued by the Landlord acquiescing to such works. Should you dont have the approvals to hand do not contact the landlord without contacting your lawyer in advance. If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should make sure that you are holding the original share document. Obtaining a re-issued share certificate is often a time consuming formality and slows down many a Pudsey home move. Where a reissued share is required, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity.

I acquired a 1st floor flat in Pudsey, conveyancing formalities finalised 5 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Pudsey with an extended lease are worth £179,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2075

With just 57 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £26,600 and £30,800 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues 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 without first seeking the advice of a professional.
