Will our solicitor be asking questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Aldermanbury.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Aldermanbury. Some people will acquire a house in Aldermanbury, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that may be carried out by the buyer or by their solicitors which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Aldermanbury. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard question of the vendor to discover if the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser could bring a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect answer. A buyer’s lawyers should also conduct an environmental search. This will disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be conducted.

How does conveyancing in Aldermanbury differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Aldermanbury come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Aldermanbury tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Aldermanbury or who has acted in the same development.

We expect to complete the sale of our £375,000 flat in Aldermanbury next week. The freeholder has quoted £396 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Aldermanbury?

Aldermanbury conveyancing on leasehold apartments more often than not requires the purchaser’s conveyancer sending enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address these enquiries most will be willing to assist. They are at liberty to charge a reasonable charge for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some situations it is above £800. The management information fee levied by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the invoice is technically not due. In reality one has no option but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to complete the sale of your home.

Notwithstanding our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in trying to reach an agreement for a lease extension in Aldermanbury. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Aldermanbury conveyancing firm who can help.
