  2. Hi, I bought a BTL property last year via an SPV and paid £500 + VAT for independent legal advice for the personal guarantee. I'm now on BTL no.2 and would absolutely love to avoid being robbed at daylight this time round! Can anyone suggest and London based solicitors (or national ones offering the service via Skype) that can give advice at a reasonable price? Thanks
  3. Hi, Could you recommend reliable Solicitor who could deal with auction purchase in Liverpool? I'm searching as well for trustworthy efficient building company/builder to make some refurbishment.

  4. Thanks for taking the time to read. Will try and make as brief as possible and will reply quickly if there are any questions I purchased a building containing 3 flats and I am planning to rent the flats on a serviced accommodation basis. The contract details that the developer is obliged to complete snagging. I had a professional compile a snag list and sent this to the developer. The developer has been ignoring correspondence since. I have notified the developer that I am in the process of sourcing a mediator and said that I am planning on pursing the developer in the courts to force them to complete the snagging work and for the lost revenue that I am starting to incur. I am hoping that this may prompt some action from the developer but I am planning for the worst. I am an avid listener of the podcast and do my best to educate myself on all things property, but I am very much a novice. Any advice on how this matter should be handled would be greatly appreciated. I have also listed some key issues that I would love some input on below. - Who generally pays mediator costs - Claiming for lost revenue due to the delay - The developer did not seal the chimney and as a result a bedroom on the ground floor is suffering from damp, is this type of defect typically covered?
  5. If I sell my flat to the SPV, say for £450K and the SPV only has a cash balance of £400K, can the Solicitor actually complete on this sale? i.e. physically only £400K will change hands as it were. The remainder £50K will be shown as a Director's loan owed to me from my SPV LTD company. My accountant is OK with this however he isn't sure about whether the Solicitor can complete the sale without the whole value of £450K being transferred. 1) Has anyone actually done this and has it worked? If so, how e.g. did the Solicitor have to draw up a separate loan agreement so that the sale can go through? Any other ways of making this happen? 2) In the future, if the SPV then needs to take out a mortgage, will the outstanding loan from the SPV to me cause an issue with getting a mortgage? Thanks very much all.

  15. Hello Everyone, Seems like I may have slightly overpaid on solicitor fee's when purchasing my current residence. Now that I'm looking towards my next project, these are some costs which i'd like to get under control. A couple of questions for you kind people: 1. Not including search fees etc, what do you consider a typical and reasonable solicitor fee when purchasing circa £70k properties in the north-west? 2. I'd love to hear of any recommendations you have for reasonably priced but very communicative and generally "on-it" solicitors in my region! Thanks very much for your help, All the best, Will

  18. Hi All, We are looking to buy our first property using our Ltd Co. that we have set up. We have found a property in need of refurb and we are looking to buy using bridging finance (we do have the cash to buy out right but prefer to use bridging), refurb and refinance later. We have gone to our usual solicitor who has worked for us on a few land and property deals before that have always been straight forward mortgages buying in our own names. However for the first time as a limited company their quote seems to have increased quite a bit (£1,500 +VAT + disbursements for searches etc) and 'guideline timeframe' is just not good enough for quick turnaround purchases. The only thing that is really different is that I said 'buying as a limited company' and 'bridging finance'! The house is only worth £50k. Can anyone recommend a conveyancing solicitor that is experienced in Limited Companies buying using bridging finance that have reasonable fees? Cheers, David.
  19. Hi all, Hope you can help! I own a leasehold flat with a remaining lease term of 84 years. Myself and the other leasehold flat owner would like to buy the freehold. The management company that currently own the freehold want to charge us a fee just to get a quote to buy the freehold - is this normal? And if so, is there a 'fair' price to be aware of? The flat is based in Kent, can anyone recommend a good solicitor to deal with the lease extension? Thanks very much in advance Ohil
