About to purchase a new build apartment in Acklam. 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.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Acklam
There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one close by in Acklam I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Acklam suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Acklam. Conveyancing and Barclays mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1994. The conveyancing solicitor in Acklam who acted for me is not around. Any advice?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Acklam conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
Acklam Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Queries before buying
Its a good idea to discover as much as you can concerning the company managing the block as they will affect your use and enjoyment of the property. Being a leasehold owner you are frequently at the mercy of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to practical matters like the cleanliness of the communal areas. Enquire of prospective neighbours what they think of their management. Finally, investigate as to the dates that the maintenance charges are due to the relevant party and precisely how they are spending that money. Where a Acklam lease has less than eighty years it will impact the marketability of the flat. Check with your bank that they are happy with the length of the lease. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will almost definitely need a lease extension sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you will be be obliged to have been the owner of the residence for 24 months before you are legally able to exercise a lease extension. How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their maintenance charge payments?
