What is the first thing I need to know regarding purchase conveyancing in Braunstone?

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Braunstone and elsewhere in Leicestershire is often a confrontational process.

For instance, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes the lender.

I own a leasehold house in Braunstone. Conveyancing and TSB mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in Braunstone who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. There is no need to incur the fees of a Braunstone conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Braunstone - Examples of Questions you should ask Prior to buying

    How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their maintenance charge payments? Who are the managing agents? If a Braunstone lease has no more than eighty years it will impact the marketability of the flat. Check with your mortgage company that they are willing to lend given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably have to extend the lease sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. For most Braunstonelease extensions you would be required to have owned the residence for a couple of years in order to be entitled to extend the lease.

How easy is it to change a solicitor as I need to find a Braunstone based one who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. Is it advisable to appoint a new law firm?

If you haven't yet appointed a solicitor to start work and have just received an estimate as to costs, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Braunstone that you're thinking of instructing.
