Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Torrington

My fiance’s mother is a conveyancer. I am hopeful that I'll be able to get preferential pricing for conveyancing, However if that does not come through, what level of figure should I be paying for conveyancing in Torrington?

We had chosen conveyancers with offices in Torrington on the Barclays solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a separate fee for the legal aspects of the Barclays mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Barclays?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your lawyer may charge a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Barclays but by your Torrington solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Barclays panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

How can we tell if a Torrington conveyancing solicitor on the Skipton panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Torrington getting recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

My partner and I are at the point of viewing apartments in Torrington and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it best to have a conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a home loan with Kent Reliance.

It would be advisable to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. As you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

Me and my brother have a renovated Victorian property in Torrington. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Barnsley Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Barnsley Building Society to clarify?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Torrington and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.

In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business offices in Torrington and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act affords security of tenure to business leaseholders, granting the dueness to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of an expired lease. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Torrington is one of the numerous locations in which the firms we work with are based

As a tenant I am on the hook for a service charge for my first floor flat in Torrington. Due to redundancy and other issues I fell behind with payments. I negotiated a settlement schedule but there is still a couple of remaining in arrears.

I now wish to dispose of the property and I am worried this can hold me back if I have to pay off the amount due now. Do I have to settle before - is this viable?

You should clarify with the solicitor undertaking your Torrington conveyancing but it might be possible to agree for the outstanding amount to be transferred to the buyers. The contractual price they pay would be adjusted to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They would then deal with the outstanding monies once they are the owners.
