It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Babbacombe took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Babbacombe I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Babbacombe suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

What does commercial conveyancing in Babbacombe cover?

Babbacombe conveyancing for business premises covers a broad array of guidance, given by regulated solicitors, relating to business premises.

Notwithstanding that your last Babbacombe conveyancing solicitor is no longer around you can review your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the premises. The accepted inference is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you need to seek permission from your landlord or some other party prior to subletting. The net result is you not allowed to sublet without first obtaining consent. Such consent is not allowed to be unreasonably turned down. If the lease prohibits you from letting out the property you will need to ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
