Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Twyford

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Twyford. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Twyford?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be invited to pick up the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

My husband and I are at the point of viewing houses in Twyford and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it wise to have a conveyancer on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a home loan with Nottingham.

It would be advisable to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the EA. As you are obtaining a mortgage with Nottingham, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Twyford is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Me and my brother own a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Twyford. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Leeds Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Twyford and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Twyford. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

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. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element 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 acquired a ground floor flat in Twyford, conveyancing was carried out September 2012. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar flats in Twyford with over 90 years remaining are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2089

With only 65 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £13,300 and £15,400 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
