Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bootle

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in Bootle. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't locate my title deeds. Is this a problem?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be kept by your lender or they could still be with the lawyers who acted in your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Bootle relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

We are buying a property and the conveyancer has identified Chancel Repair for which the property could be liable given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. She has suggested insurance. Is this really appropriate for conveyancing in Bootle

Unless a prior acquisition of the house took place post 12 October 2013 you may expect conveyancing practitioners carrying out conveyancing in Bootle to remain recommending a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Bootle. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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 questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Bootle

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. 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. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Bootle I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Bootle in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

I am thinking of appointing a conveyancing lawyer in Bootle for my home move. Is there any facility to see a solicitor's record with the legal regulator?

Anyone may read presented Solicitor Regulator Association (SRA) determinations stemming from inquisitions commenced on or after Jan 2008. Go to Check a solicitor's record. To find details Pre 2008, or to check a solicitors history, call 0870 606 2555, 08.00 - 18.00 any week day save for Tuesday when lines open at 9.30am. International callers, dial +44 (0)121 329 6800. The SRA may recorded call for training reasons.

Last May I purchased a leasehold flat in Bootle. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
