Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aldwych

I am in the market for a low cost conveyancer. Do I opt for an online conveyancer as opposed to a high street Aldwych conveyancing lawyer?

I am selling my home in Aldwych. Will my conveyancing practitioner need to be required to be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.

How does conveyancing in Aldwych differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Aldwych approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Aldwych typically purchase the site, 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 conveyancers 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 Aldwych or who has acted in the same development.

I decided to have a survey done on a property in Aldwych prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders will not grant a loan on this type of home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions from Nationwide. Should you wish to telephone us we can check with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Aldwych. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Aldwych to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

I am attracted to a couple of maisonettes in Aldwych both have in the region of fifty years unexpired on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

There are plenty of short leases in Aldwych. The lease is a right to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As a lease shortens the marketability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to extend the lease. For this reason it is advisable to extend the lease term. Sometimes it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage companies may be unwilling to lend money on such properties. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We advise that you get professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this field.

I am the leaseholder of a garden flat in Aldwych. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the sum payable for the purchase of the freehold?

Absolutely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Aldwych conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Aldwych property is 20 Avonwick Road in July 2013. The Tribunal was dealing with an application under Section 26 of the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 for a determination of the freehold value of the property. It was concluded that the price to be paid was Fifteen Thousand Nine Hundred and Seventy (£15,970) divided as to £8,200 for Flat 20 and £7,770 for Flat 20A This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 73.26 years.
