In the event thatI was to buy a simple residential propertyin Thorpe Hesley mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Thorpe Hesley?
The sole saving you would achieve is the Thorpe Hesley conveyancing searches. Your conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the sellers solicitor, stamp duty submission, register the property etc. A slight saving might be made by not having to register a charge however it will not be a lot.
I am purchasing a new build house in Thorpe Hesley benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about this side-deal as it will jeopardize my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Thorpe Hesley I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Thorpe Hesley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
I was recommended by a number of estate agents in Thorpe Hesley to get a quote from a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your services over another?
We refuse to make any referral fee for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I acquired a 2 bed flat in Thorpe Hesley, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension?
