Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bracknell

I am selling our property in Bracknell and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Bracknell. Having lived in Bracknell for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I have todaybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Bracknell for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can carry out 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 Bracknell conveyancing specialists.

I am buying a new build house in Bracknell with a loan from Leeds Building Society. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about this extras as it would put at risk my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Back In 2001, I bought a leasehold flat in Bracknell. Conveyancing and Chelsea Building Society mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing practitioner in Bracknell who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

First contact the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to instruct a Bracknell conveyancing solicitor to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

Bracknell Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should ask before Purchasing

    Is anyone aware of any major works in the planning that will increase the maintenance charges? If a Bracknell lease has fewer than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the salability of the flat. Check with your mortgage company that they are happy with residual term of the lease. A short lease means that you will almost definitely need a lease extension sooner rather than later and it is worth finding out how much this would cost. For most Bracknelllease extensions you would need to own the property for 24 months in order to be legally able to extend the lease. How many years remain on the lease?

What is the reason for my conveyancing practitioner requiring various items of identification before I can proceed with selling or buying a property in Bracknell?

Bracknell lawyers are obliged by the Law Society, Solicitors Regulation Authority, HM Land Registry and current Money Laundering Regulations to record that the have verified the identity of their clients.
