I am buying a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in The Meadows who is on the Skipton Building Society conveyancing. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Skipton Building Society in certain locations such as The Meadows. We dont recommend any particular firm.
I am aiming to move property in June. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in The Meadows. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen before I stumbled across your page.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your estate agent but this can only take place after the previous owners solicitors inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. After that you can tell 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 choosing a conveyancing in The Meadows or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in The Meadows.
Can you help - my lawyer advises that defective lease insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for The Meadows conveyancing?
The right level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Halifax and Virgin Money. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
Lloyds have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a property in The Meadows has been accepted, what happens next?
Your property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the lawyers are on the bank’s approved list). Telephone Lloyds or the financial adviser and complete any outstanding paperwork. Lloyds will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or owners to schedule an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Lloyds will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in The Meadows.
4 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in The Meadows completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I am buying a new build apartment in The Meadows. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in The Meadows I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in The Meadows for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
