We have identified numerous conveyancing specialists who can service right to buy conveyancing Do get in touch with the conveyancers listed with a view to secure a costs calculation.

I am the registered owner of a freehold property in Alsager yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Alsager and has limited impact for conveyancing in Alsager but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

Should my solicitor be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Alsager.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in Alsager. There are those who buy a property in Alsager, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Alsager. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to determine if the premises has historically flooded. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the seller, then a purchaser may bring a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate response. The purchaser’s conveyancers should also order an enviro search. This will higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be conducted.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Alsager is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Alsager are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Alsager you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Alsager 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 Alsager and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Alsager. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Alsager area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Alsager. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

I work for a busy estate agent office in Alsager where we have witnessed a few leasehold sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Alsager conveyancing firms. Can you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

I acquired a 2 bed flat in Alsager, conveyancing was carried out September 2003. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Similar properties in Alsager with over 90 years remaining are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2076

With only 55 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £31,400 and £36,200 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
