About to place a bid on a leasehold property in Arnold. The estate agents tell me that it is standard for flats in Arnold to have less than 75 years remaining. I am getting a loan with Tesco Bank. Is this going to be acceptable if the lease has 70 years left.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are securing a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Tesco Bank have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 22/5/2024 the requirements read as follows :

I'm buying my first flat in Arnold with a mortgage from Coventry Building Society. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent told me not inform my solicitor about this side-deal as it may put at risk my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

I have been pointed in your direction by numerous estate agents in Arnold to find a property lawyer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t offer any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Arnold

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is counter productive. Contact the sellers directly and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to use your preferred Arnold conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by head office.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our Arnold basement flat for a while due to a new job. We instructed a Arnold conveyancing firm in 2001 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

The lease dictates relations between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Arnold do not prevent strict prohibition on subletting – such a provision would undoubtedly devalue the property. In most cases there is simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the tenancy agreement.

Arnold Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Questions you should ask before buying

    How is the lease structured? Plenty Arnold leasehold flats will incur a service bill for maintenance of the building levied on behalf of the landlord. If you buy the property you will have to meet this charge, usually periodically accross the year. This can be anything from a couple of hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large common areas. There will also be a ground rent for you to pay annual, this is usually not a large figure, say about £25-£75 but you should to check it because occasionally it can be many hundreds of pounds. It would be sensible to find out as much as possible regarding the company managing the block as they can either make living at the property much easier or a lot more difficult. Being a leasehold owner you are frequently in the clutches of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to daily matters like the tidiness of the communal areas. Ask other tenants whether they are happy with their service. Finally, be sure you know the dates that you are obliged pay the service charge to the relevant party and precisely what it includes.
