My conveyancer has uncovered a a problem with the lease for the flat we are buying in Ashbourne. The seller’s lawyers have put forward title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our conveyancer has advised that he must ensure that the bank is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the bank?

The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the mortgage company are the client. Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the mortgage company can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your property lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

My friend advised me that where I am buying in Ashbourne I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is usually quoted for as part of the standard Ashbourne conveyancing searches.

It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Ashbourne Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Ashbourne.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Ashbourne I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Ashbourne for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business offices in Ashbourne and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act gives a safeguard to commercial lessees, granting the dueness to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Ashbourne is one of the numerous locations in which the firms we work with are based
