As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Carisbrooke what’s the number one tip you can impart concerning the house moving process in Carisbrooke

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Carisbrooke or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes the mortgage company.

We are selling our flat in Carisbrooke. Will my conveyancer have to be required to be on the Principality conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Principality conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Carisbrooke took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

I am attracted to a couple of flats in Carisbrooke which have in the region of fifty years unexpired on the lease term. should I be concerned?

There is no doubt about it. A leasehold flat in Carisbrooke is a wasting asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it reduces the value of the premises. The majority of purchasers and mortgage companies, leases with less than 75 years become less and less marketable. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the property for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a residence with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Carisbrooke conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. A more straightforward and quicker method of extending would be to contact your landlord directly and sound him out on the prospect of extending the lease. They may agree to a smaller lump sum and an increase in the ground rent, but to shorter extension terms in return. You need to ensure that the agreed terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

I invested in buying a leasehold flat in Carisbrooke, conveyancing was carried out in 2003. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Carisbrooke with a long lease are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2095

With just 75 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £8,600 and £9,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
