Much to our surprise we have been notified by our mortgage adviser that my Rush Green solicitor is not on the lender Conveyancing panel. How can I be sure that this is correct?
You need to call your Rush Green conveyancer. You lawyer should inform you of the situation. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Rush Green conveyancing practice that is on the approved list of lawyers for your lender.
If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Rush Green what would it be?
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Rush Green conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.
Can you point me to a directory of Coventry BS panel conveyancers in Rush Green on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
No. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings viewable on the web. Where you are in need of a Rush Green conveyancer on the Coventry BS please use our tool.
We expect to receive a AIP from Bank of Ireland this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Bank of Ireland recommend any Rush Green solicitors on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Rush Green solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Bank of Ireland through the process.
My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Rush Green and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Rush Green lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Rush Green. Having lived in Rush Green for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Rush Green I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Rush Green for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £125,000 maisonette in Rush Green in just under a week. The management company has quoted £348 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and previous years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Rush Green?

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such matters? Can you recommend a Rush Green conveyancing firm to represent me?
in cases where there is a absentee landlord or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to assess the premium.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a Rush Green residence is 37 Lodge Court High Street in November 2013. the decision of the LVT was that the premium to be paid for the new lease was £25,559 This case related to 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 57.5 years.
