Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Yeadon

Why would I appoint a Yeadon conveyancing firm when national alternatives are more affordable?

By all means make sure that you contrast conveyancing costs in Yeadon and you should seek a competitive quote but don’t be focused with searching for the lowest priced Yeadon conveyancer. Identifying the right conveyancer can mark the distinction between a smooth and a frustrating house move. You need to ensure that you have expert guidance from a trusted conveyancer. An e-mail can never take the place of a telephone call and can never replicate a one to one appointment. The firms that we work with will appoint you a qualified and trusted conveyancing solicitor who can deal with your conveyancing from beginning to end, giving the sort of hand holding that you are unlikely to received from an internet conveyancer. He or She will update you as to any developments and keep you informed. If you ever need to call the firm you will be sure who to ask for and we'll ensure you are kept fully informed.

We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Yeadon and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Yeadon. We have lived in Yeadon for many years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)

I am buying a new build flat in Yeadon. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Yeadon

    The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Taking into account that I will soon part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a two bedroom apartment in Yeadon I wish to talk to a conveyancer about myconveyancing ahead of appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we encourage - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer who will be doing your conveyancing in Yeadon.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important individual, not a matter reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for your conveyancing in Yeadon should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Yeadon. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee 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 ensure 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).
