A colleague recommended that if I am purchasing in Avery Hill I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Avery Hill conveyancing searches. It is a large document of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing significant information about Avery Hill around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Avery Hill Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Avery Hill.
Just acquired a terraced house in Avery Hill , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Avery Hill conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure the land registry aspects are concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Avery Hill registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected once the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore registration formalities is not typically an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I am buying a new build apartment in Avery Hill. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Avery Hill
Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. 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.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Avery Hill is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Avery Hill are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Avery Hill you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Avery Hill may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
