I am purchasing a newly constructed apartment in Shirebrook and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the builder. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange contracts and my preference is not to delay deal. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

I had intended to instruct a property lawyer in Shirebrook for our house purchase. Our financial adviser informed us that our mortgage lenders National Westminster Bank won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Pre- 2008 most lenders had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Shirebrook conveyancing firms would have been on many lender panels. The FSA in 2010 conducted a thematic review into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies are increasingly seeing more data from law firms concerning their operations and their employees as well as establishing certain criteria such a completing on a minimum volume of transactions. Many Shirebrook conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Shirebrook is one of the many areas where the conveyancers we recommend are members of the panel for National Westminster Bank.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Shirebrook. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Shirebrook

    Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

My partner and I may need to let out our Shirebrook basement flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Shirebrook conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

Notwithstanding that your last Shirebrook conveyancing solicitor is no longer around you can check your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the premises. The accepted inference is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is permitted. There may be a precondition that you must obtain permission from your landlord or other appropriate person before subletting. This means you not allowed to sublet in the absence of first obtaining permission. The consent is not allowed to be unreasonably turned down. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.

I purchased a split level flat in Shirebrook, conveyancing formalities finalised 5 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent flats in Shirebrook with over 90 years remaining are worth £190,000. The ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2083

With 61 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to range between £19,000 and £22,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
