A colleague advised me that if I am purchasing in Rotherham I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is occasionally included in the estimate for your Rotherham conveyancing searches. It is a large document of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out important information about Rotherham around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Rotherham Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Rotherham.
I have been recommended by numerous estate agents in Rotherham to select a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to offer your site over and above another?
We refuse to give any commission for directing people to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I have been sourcing a conveyancing practitioner in Rotherham for my remortgage. Can I review a firm’s record with the legal regulator?
Anyone may review published Solicitor Regulator Association (SRA) determinations arising from inquisitions started on or after Jan 2008. Visit Check a solicitor's record. To find records Pre 2008, or to check a solicitors history, ring 0870 606 2555, 08.00 - 18.00 Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and 09.30 - 18.00 Tuesday. International callers, dial +44 (0)121 329 6800. The regulator could recorded call for training purposes.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Rotherham. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Rotherham - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I acquired a 1 bedroom flat in Rotherham, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar properties in Rotherham with over 90 years remaining are worth £171,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2097
With just 79 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
Do online conveyancing organisations undertake everything a local Rotherham solicitor does or must I use a solicitor for the final stages for my conveyancing in Rotherham?
If you instruct an online conveyancer they should cover all the work your Rotherham conveyancer will cover.
