I own a leasehold flat in Bromborough. Conveyancing and Yorkshire Building Society mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1995. The conveyancing practitioner in Bromborough who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?
First make enquiries of the Land Registry to be sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. There is no need to incur the fees of a Bromborough conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
Leasehold Conveyancing in Bromborough - Sample of Queries Prior to buying
If a Bromborough lease has fewer than 80 years it will affect the value of the flat. Check with your mortgage company that they are happy with residual term of the lease. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely require a lease extension at some point and you need to have some idea of what this will be. Remember, in most cases you would be required to have owned the property for a couple of years before you are entitled to extend the lease. Who are the managing agents? Be sure to investigate if there are any onerous prohibitions in the lease. By way of example plenty of leases prohibit pets being permitted in in a block in Bromborough.

I have read on a number of consumer advice websites that before selecting a conveyancing firm they must be approved by your bank. It happens to be my first home move but I have an offer in principle via Santander and I already have a high street conveyancing solicitor in Bromborough in place. Can HSBC insist on an approved lawyer to be used? Does a directory of panel firms even exist for my conveyancing in Bromborough?
You need to use a solicitor that is on the HSBC panel. Just telephone your preferred Bromborough conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the HSBC panel. If they are not approved you have a number of choices available to you here:
- Proceed with your existing Bromborough conveyancing practitioner but HSBC will undoubtedly use a conveyancer on their conveyancing panel. The net impact is additional charges and likely interruption.
- Appoint a new property lawyer to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
- Convince your solicitor to do everything within their powers to join the HSBC conveyancing panel.
