Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Aylestone costs more?
The conveyancing fees on a leasehold property in Aylestone is frequently more expensive than on a freehold residence.

Will our solicitor be asking questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Aylestone.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors dealing with homes in Aylestone. There are those who buy a house in Aylestone, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded.

Solicitors are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a various searches that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Aylestone. The standard completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard question of the vendor to discover if the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may commence a legal claim for losses stemming from an incorrect reply. A purchaser’s solicitors may also order an enviro search. This should indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be initiated.
I have recentlyfound out that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Aylestone for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest method to check if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Aylestone conveyancing specialists.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Aylestone I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Aylestone for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan that many years will be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
