Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Stoke Bishop is more expensive?

In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Stoke Bishop and Bristol usually requires additional work compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes reviewing the lease, liaising with the landlord about serving appropriate notices, securing up-to-date service charge and management information, securing the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different leaseholders have owned the lease since it was first entered into.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Stoke Bishop. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Stoke Bishop?

I currently have a mortgage with RBS for my property in Stoke Bishop. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform RBS?

You must advise RBS before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of RBS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact RBS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a RBS conveyancing panel solicitor.

Just bought a semi-detached house in Stoke Bishop , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Stoke Bishop conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check the registration formalities are dealt with.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Stoke Bishop registration formalities.

Historically registration is effected after the buyer is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not always an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
