My wife and I are about to exchange on the purchase of a property in Alresford but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the current proprietors in the sum of three thousand pounds taking the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement however Clydesdale are not allowing this. Why were they involved?

Your conveyancing practitioner being on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is duty bound to disclose to Clydesdale of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to report the price change to Clydesdale then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Clydesdale and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Alresford.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Alresford. There are those who buy a house in Alresford, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

The standard property information forms given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard question of the vendor to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading response. The purchaser’s solicitors will also order an enviro search. This should indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be carried out.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Alresford I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Alresford for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

My partner has recommend that I appoint his conveyancers in Alresford. Should I choose my own property lawyer?
