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

Shirehampton leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

I am aiming to move house in July. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Shirehampton. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across your website.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the estate agent but this should only occur after the previous owners conveyancers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. Subsequently you will need to inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Shirehampton or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Shirehampton.

I have paid off my mortgage with Principality. I assume I don't need a Shirehampton conveyancer on the Principality panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Principality mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Principality mortgage from the register. Principality, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Principality has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Principality has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Principality mortgage has been paid off.

It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Shirehampton building society branch on various occasions and was advised it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Shirehampton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Your conveyancing practitioner has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 requirements for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Shirehampton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any high street Shirehampton lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Shirehampton. We have lived in Shirehampton for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to enquire of 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)

How do I use your search facility to locate a conveyancing practitioner in Shirehampton on the panel for my mortgage?

1st choose a bank such as Barclays , Bank of Scotland or TSB then type in your location for instance Shirehampton. Conveyancing practices in Shirehampton and nationally should be identified.
