Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shirebrook

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Shirebrook is more expensive?

The conveyancing charges on a leasehold premises in Shirebrook is often greater when contrasted to a freehold transaction. This is because there is an amount of supplemental time necessary in dealing with the freeholder and managing agents to collate the evidence concerning whether the rent and maintenance fee have been paid and whether there are any significant expenditure in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house can not be found. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Shirebrook 10 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?

As long as you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by HMLR under a Title Number. It is easy to carry out a search at the Land Registry, find your property and get current copies of the property title for less than a fiver. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for twenty pounds.

How does conveyancing in Shirebrook differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Shirebrook approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in Shirebrook usually buy 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Shirebrook or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the agent informed us that the vendor will only proceed if we instruct their recommended solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Shirebrook

It is unlikely the owners are behind this. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Shirebrook conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide the estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing figures set by HQ.

My step-mother purchased her house in Shirebrook in 2005. She has since got married, divorced and is now remarried. She now intends to the sell the Shirebrook property. I suspect that she will just be asked to supply copies of the marriage certificates to the solicitor but she is worried it could delay the house move. Should she instruct a conveyancer to update the Land Registry documents for the property?

The is no need to bring up to date the title for the property as long as you have the proof needed to demonstrate how the change of name has come about.

The purchaser’s property lawyer should check the land registry information and ask for evidence to establish the name change e.g. marriage documentation.
