I am under pressure from the mortgagee in possession of a property in Tarporley to exchange within four weeks. What can I do to speed up matters?

It is believed that nearly one in five of Tarporley conveyancing transactions are held up or derailed after finding out that a buyer’s lawyer was not on their banks member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the buying process being delayed by almost 21 days. It is estimated that this issue impacts in the region of 100,000 home sales every year. Many Tarporley conveyancing firms can not represent certain banks so do check as early as possible.
We wanted to use a property lawyer in Tarporley for our house purchase. Our broker has since notified us that our mortgage lenders Birmingham Midshires won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Mortgage Companies normally imposes restrictions either the category or the amount of conveyancing firms on their member panel. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. As well as restricting the profile of firm, some have reduced the number of firms they allow to represent them. Be aware that Birmingham Midshires have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Birmingham Midshires Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels since 2008 even though there are mixed opinions about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms, including some in or near Tarporley only carry out very few conveyances per annum.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Tarporley is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Tarporley are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Tarporley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

- Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Tarporley can be bypassed if you get in touch lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold documentation which will be required by the purchasers’ solicitors. Many freeholders or managing agents in Tarporley charge for providing management packs for a leasehold premises. You or your lawyers should find out the actual amount of the charges.

It is the most usual reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Tarporley. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be advisable double-check by asking your solicitors. A purchaser's conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to proceed with the purchase of a leasehold property the lease term is less than 80 years. In the circumstances it is important at an as soon as possible that you consider whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale. A minority of Tarporley leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this is the case, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s approval? Have you, for example installed wooden flooring? Tarporley leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or addition of wooden flooring necessitate a licence issued by the Landlord consenting to such alterations. Where you fail to have the consents in place you should not contact the landlord without checking with your conveyancer in the first instance.
I acquired a basement flat in Tarporley, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease?

With 80 years unexpired the likely cost is going to span between £8,600 and £9,800 plus legals.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
