Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sharnbrook

We are purchasing a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Sharnbrook who is on the UBS approved panel. Can you recommend a local solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for UBS . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Sharnbrook.

We are planning on selling our house in Sharnbrook and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Sharnbrook lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Sharnbrook. Having lived in Sharnbrook for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You should 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 sickness)

I am buying a new build house in Sharnbrook with a loan from Santander. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

What are your top tips when it comes to finding a Sharnbrook conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

When appointing a property lawyer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Sharnbrook conveyancing firm) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you make enquires with several firms including non Sharnbrook conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be helpful:

    What are the costs for lease extension work? How experienced is the practice with lease extension legislation?

I own a ground floor flat in Sharnbrook, conveyancing having been completed 5 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Comparable properties in Sharnbrook with an extended lease are worth £171,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease expires on 21st October 2101

With just 79 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed 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 you obviously want to 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.

My husband and I yesterday become aware that one of the partners of the solicitors acting on the purchase conveyancing in Sharnbrook is an aunty of the vendor. Is this allowed?

As long as there is no conflict of interest this is allowable. If you are needing a mortgage then the mortgage company may have a say as many mortgage companies have specific instructions on this. For example for Clydesdale Bank as of 17/1/2022, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Yes, in the circumstances stated in part 1 of the handbook.
