We are aiming to move property in September. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Yelverton. Conveyancing firm was chosen prior to coming across this site.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from your selling agent however this can only take place after the vendors solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released.

We do not recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Yelverton or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Yelverton.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Lloyds. Yelverton conveyancing solicitors are selected. How long does it take for Lloyds to issue the offer to the lawyer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Lloyds conducted the survey? Have you informed Lloyds as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I am expecting a OIP from Nottingham this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nottingham recommend any Yelverton solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Yelverton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.

I have recentlydiscovered that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Yelverton for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to see if the property is in your name, you can carry out 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 Yelverton conveyancing specialists.

Completion is due on the sale of our £325,000 maisonette in Yelverton next Monday. The landlords agents has quoted £384 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Yelverton?

Yelverton conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes normally requires the purchaser’s solicitor submitting enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address such questions most will be content to do so. They are at liberty to invoice a reasonable charge for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some situations it is in excess of £800. The management information fee invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in respect of administration charges, without which the charge is not strictly payable. In reality one has no choice but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to complete the sale of your home.

I acquired a ground floor flat in Yelverton, 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? Corresponding flats in Yelverton with a long lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2079

You have 60 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £20,000 and £23,000 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.

Developers have suggested I use a solicitor and I've sought a quote from them. It's nearly £300 cheaper than my local Yelverton solicitor. Should I use them?

Builders often have panels of solicitors who expedite matters and who know the developer’s documentation and property lawyer. Plenty of developers offer an incentive to select a preferred conveyancer for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a builder won't put forward a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they require an exchange inside a month. The argument for not opting for the suggested solicitor is that they may prove reluctant to 'push' your interests at the risk of upsetting the housebuilder. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should remain with your high street Yelverton lawyer.
