I am planning to move property in February. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Tilbury. Conveyancing lawyer was organised before I stumbled across your page.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your estate agent however this should only be done when the previous owners conveyancers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. After that you should inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Tilbury or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Tilbury.
My wife and I purchasing a 3 bedroom semi in Tilbury. Our aim is to convert the garage to a playroom at the property.Will the conveyancing process include enquiries to determine if these works are allowed?
Your conveyancer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Tilbury can sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain works or require the consent of a 3rd party. Some additions require local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
We previously appointed solicitors with offices in Tilbury on the Santander solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a supplemental sum for the legal aspects of the Santander mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Santander?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Santander but by your Tilbury conveyancer. Some firms on the Santander panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.
I am selling our house in Tilbury and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Tilbury lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Tilbury. We have lived in Tilbury for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
The deeds to my house are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Tilbury 5 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?
Gone are the days when you need to hold title deeds to establish that you are the owner of your registered land or premises, given that the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.
Last July I purchased a leasehold house in Tilbury. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
I invested in buying a ground floor flat in Tilbury, conveyancing having been completed in 1997. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Tilbury with over 90 years remaining are worth £171,000. The ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2097
With just 79 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
I cannot get to my Tilbury conveyancing lawyers office to sign documents connected to my conveyancing in Tilbury – will this be problematic?
No. Tilbury conveyancing solicitors can deal with conveyancing transactions for clients throughout the rest of the country. You are unlikely to be required to meet your lawyer in the flesh at a Tilbury conveyancers office. They can handle everything remotely from their Tilbury office.
