Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Barton le Willows

My husband and I are getting closer to an exchange on a flat in Barton le Willows and my parents have transferred the 10% deposit to my property lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has not arrived from me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?

Your conveyancing practitioner is obliged to check with lender to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

I am the registered owner of a freehold house in Barton le Willows yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Barton le Willows and has limited impact for conveyancing in Barton le Willows but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

I am selling my apartment in Barton le Willows. Does the conveyancing practitioner need to be required to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently at the moment.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Barton le Willows. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Barton le Willows

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Barton le Willows I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Barton le Willows suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

The property lawyers undertaking our conveyancing in Barton le Willows has sent papers to review that show the property is unregistered with epitome documents. Surely all property in Barton le Willows should be registered?

The majority of property in Barton le Willows is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Plenty of Barton le Willows conveyancing lawyers will be capable of dealing with this type of conveyancing but in the event that uncertainty exists the conventional proposition these days appears to be for the seller’s conveyancer to deal with the registration formalities first and then deal with the disposal - this will have a knock on effect to cause a significant delay.
