I'm the single beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Aston. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in April. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this clause is principally there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Aston. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently.

The search will provide data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen topic sections.

How does conveyancing in Aston differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Aston approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Aston tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Aston or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking at a couple of apartments in Aston both have about 50 years left on the lease term. should I be concerned?

There are plenty of short leases in Aston. The lease is a right to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As a lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease decreases and it becomes more expensive to extend the lease. For this reason it is often a good idea to extend the lease term. Sometimes it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We advise that you get professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this area.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Aston - Examples of Queries before buying

    You should be aware if it is less than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the value of the property. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are willing to to proceed given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely have to extend the lease sooner rather than later and it is worth discovering what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you will need to own the residence for 24 months before you are eligible to extend the lease. Best to be warned whether redecorating or some other major work is pending that will be shared between the leasehold owners and could well dramatically impact the level of the service fees or result in a one off payment. The best form of lease structure is where the freehold reversion is in the ownership of the leaseholders. In this arrangement the tenants have being in charge if their destiny and notwithstanding that a managing agent is often retained if it is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves.
