Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Adamsdown

Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Adamsdown costs more?

In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Adamsdown and elsewhere usually involve additional due diligence compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes analysing the lease terms, communicating with the landlord concerning the service of appropriate notices, obtaining up-to-date service charge and management information, securing the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different owners have owned the lease since it was first granted.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Adamsdown is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Adamsdown are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Adamsdown you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Adamsdown may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

I am looking into buying my first house which is in Adamsdown and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Adamsdown. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Adamsdown area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the agent advised that the vendor will only proceed if we instruct the agent's recommended solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Adamsdown

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this request. If they require ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Adamsdown conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give the estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.

I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Adamsdown. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part 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).

I acquired a studio flat in Adamsdown, conveyancing was carried out 3 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable flats in Adamsdown with an extended lease are worth £180,000. The ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2080

You have 58 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £21,900 and £25,200 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
