I am not well enough to travel far from Willingham. Is there a reason why all Willingham conveyancers are not on all bank panels?

Mortgage companies highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The elimination of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for mortgage companies to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This led to mortgage companies pruning a number of firms off their official list of approved conveyancers .

I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and have to vacate my rented property in Willingham by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. How realistic is it to complete in 5 weeks as don't want to have to find temporary accommodation?

Generally one should not give notice on a rental until your lawyer suggests that you should. If you have not previously done so, contact to your solicitor and request that they apply pressure on the other solicitors, try to an agreed time frame that all parties will aim to achieve

I am downsizing from our house in Willingham and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Willingham lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Willingham. We have lived in Willingham for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. 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)

I have justbecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Willingham for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to see if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Willingham conveyancing specialists.

I today plan to offer on a house that appears to tick a lot of boxes, at a reasonable figure which is making it all the more appealing. I have just found out that the title is leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a house with a leasehold title in Willingham. Conveyancing solicitors have not yet been appointed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Willingham ?

Most houses in Willingham are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local solicitor who is familiar with the area who can assist with the conveyancing process. It is clear that you are purchasing in Willingham in which case you should be shopping around for a Willingham conveyancing solicitor and check that they are used to transacting on leasehold houses. As a matter of priority you will need to check the number of years remaining. Being a lessee you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want with the house. The lease will likely included provisions for example requiring the landlord’sconsent to conduct alterations. It may be necessary to pay a service charge towards the maintenance of the estate where the house is part of an estate. Your solicitor will report to you on the legal implications.

I own a studio flat in Willingham, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar properties in Willingham with a long lease are worth £265,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2100

With just 76 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
