What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Wimborne
There are two types of lawyers who can carry out conveyancing in Wimborne namely licenced conveyancers or solicitors.

My husband and I have organised the release of further funds on our home loan from Santander as we intend to carry out a loft conversion to our home in Wimborne. Are we obliged to appoint a bricks and mortar Wimborne solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Santander do not ordinarily require firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander list.
Will commercial conveyancing searches disclose impending roadworks that could affect a commercial land in Wimborne?
Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Wimborne will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Wimborne. The search result sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Wimborne.
For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Wimborne it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately can result in delays to Wimborne commercial conveyancing transactions as well as present a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not conducted for domestic conveyancing in Wimborne.
It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Wimborne took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I have been advised by three or four local selling agents in Wimborne to locate a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to promote your site ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t offer any commission for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I am a negotiator for a long established estate agency in Wimborne where we see a few leasehold sales put at risk due to short leases. I have been given conflicting advice from local Wimborne conveyancing solicitors. Could you confirm whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the buyer?
As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I bought a 2 bed flat in Wimborne, conveyancing having been completed in 2003. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar properties in Wimborne with an extended lease are worth £179,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2078
With only 57 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £26,600 and £30,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
