Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bolsover

We are about to exchange buying a house in Bolsover but as a result of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the current proprietors in the sum of six thousand pounds taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of a side agreement yet Aldermore will not agree to this. Why were they notified?

Your property lawyer that is on a Aldermore approved list is obliged to inform Aldermore of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to notify the reduction to Aldermore then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Aldermore and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Bolsover.

I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for delay in Bolsover house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the common causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Bolsover.

I have todayfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Bolsover for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest method to check if the premises is registered to you, 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 Bolsover conveyancing specialists.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Bolsover I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Bolsover in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

What does commercial conveyancing in Bolsover cover?

Non domestic conveyancing in Bolsover incorporates a broad array of services, offered by qualified solicitors, relating to business premises. By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the assignment of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of tenancies.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 68 years remaining on my flat in Bolsover. I now want to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What are my options?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to locate the lessor. On the whole an enquiry agent should be helpful to conduct investigations and to produce an expert document which can be used as proof that the freeholder can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor in relation to devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Bolsover.

I purchased a leasehold flat in Bolsover, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in Bolsover with a long lease are worth £171,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2101

With just 79 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
