I opted for a local solicitor for our conveyancing in Ranmoor last week. Reviewing the official terms of business I noteI am liable for costs even if our purchase aborts. Would I be best advised to appoint an on-line solicitor practice promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Ranmoor?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to offset those conveyances that abort. Dont forget that these offerings rarely cover expenses for instance Ranmoor conveyancing search costs.
All was ready to move into my new home in Ranmoor next Friday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the bank. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?
All property lawyers on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 requirements. These obligations are not unique to conveyancing in Ranmoor.
How does conveyancing in Ranmoor differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Ranmoor contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because developers in Ranmoor usually purchase the land, 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ranmoor or who has acted in the same development.
How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial property in Ranmoor and how can your lawyers assist?
The 1954 Act gives protection to commercial tenants, granting the legal entitlement to apply to court for a new tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

Frank (my husband) and I may need to let out our Ranmoor basement flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a Ranmoor conveyancing firm in 2001 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?
Even though your last Ranmoor conveyancing lawyer is no longer available you can review your lease to see if you are permitted to let out the property. The accepted inference is that if the lease is silent, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you must seek consent from your landlord or some other party before subletting. The net result is you not allowed to sublet without prior consent. The consent should not be unreasonably withheld. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord for their consent.
