Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Appleton costs more?

In short, leasehold conveyancing in Appleton and Cheshire usually necessitates extra hours of investigation compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes checking the lease terms, liaising with the landlord concerning serving required notices, procuring up-to-date service charge and management information, procuring 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 am downsizing from our home in Appleton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case.

We have lived in Appleton for three years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything.

I'm buying my first flat in Appleton benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Appleton is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
