Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Thornaby

A colleague recommended that if I am buying in Thornaby I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

This is a search is sometimes included in the estimate for your Thornaby conveyancing searches.

3 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Thornaby completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 asset 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.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the selling agent advised that the owners will only move forward if we appoint their recommended solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Thornaby

It is unlikely the sellers are behind this. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is going to damage their objectives. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Thornaby conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will give their estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by senior management.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden apartment in Thornaby. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently had a yearly service charge demand – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as you normally would given that all rents and maintenance payments will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I purchased a leasehold flat in Thornaby, conveyancing was carried out 6 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar flats in Thornaby with an extended lease are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2071

You have 50 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £31,400 and £36,200 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
