    How is the lease structured? It would be wise to discover as much as possible concerning the managing agents as they will affect your use and enjoyment of the property. Being a leasehold owner you are often at the mercy of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to day to day issues such as the tidiness of the common parts. You should not be afraid to ask prospective neighbours what they think of their service. Finally, be sure you discover the dates that the service fees are due to the relevant party and specifically what it includes. How much is the annual service fee and ground rent?

What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Camelford?

Conveyancing - in Camelford or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the seller to remedy the problems before you complete your move.
