Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Beaufort

It is is a decade since I bought my property in Beaufort. Conveyancing lawyers have now been retained on the sale but I am unable to find the title deeds. Will this cause complications?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Beaufort involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

I am considering applying for a Aldermore mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Beaufort with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Aldermore ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, but Aldermore would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Beaufort with the aim of expediting the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Beaufort can be reduced if you appoint lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ representatives.
  • If you hold a share in a the freehold, you should make sure that you are holding the original share certificate. Organising a replacement share certificate can be a time consuming process and delays many a Beaufort home move. If a new share certificate is necessary, do contact the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this sooner rather than later. You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but you should verify this by asking your lawyers. A purchaser's conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to where the remaining number of years is under 80 years. In the circumstances it is important at an as soon as possible that you consider whether the lease requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. If there is a history of any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be warry about purchasing a property where there is a current dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as over as opposed to unsettled.

I acquired a basement flat in Beaufort, conveyancing was carried out 10 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar flats in Beaufort with over 90 years remaining are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2095

You have 74 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
