  • 1 Chances are that the other side’s solicitors are located in Arlesey - if so sets of lawyers are likely to be less confrontational

  • 3 Our site is the first site offering you the facility to ensure that your conveyancing in Arlesey will be conducted by a law firm on your lender’s member panel.
  • 4 Property lawyer conveyancing firms have extremely good personal links with Arlesey selling agents and work very closely with them and local surveyors so as to ensure transactions proceed expeditiously.

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared.

Arlesey Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should consider Prior to buying

    Is there a share of the freehold? The majority of Arlesey leasehold apartments will be liable to pay a service bill for maintenance of the building levied by the freeholder. If you purchase the flat you will have to pay this charge, normally in instalments accross the year. This can be anything from several hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large communal areas. There will also be a ground rent for you to pay yearly, ordinarily this is not a exorbitant amount, say about £25-£75 but you should to check it because occasionally it can be many hundreds of pounds. You should be aware if it is less than 80 years it will affect the salability of the apartment. Check with your lender that they are content with residual term of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably require a lease extension sooner rather than later and it is worth discovering how much this would cost. For most Arleseylease extensions you will be required to have owned the property for 24 months in order to be legally able to carry out a lease extension.
