Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Cheshunt 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?

Nowadays there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will be aware exactly where to locate all the appropriate paperwork so you can buy or dispose of your house without a hitch.

I am buying a new build flat in Cheshunt. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Cheshunt

    Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Cheshunt I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Cheshunt for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I'm remortgaging my existing property to a BTL mortgage with Lloyds TSB Bank and I will use the rest of the raised equity towards further house. The area we are interested in is Cheshunt. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of banks and link together the two deals?

Make use of our search tool on this site to ensure that the solicitors are approved by both mortgage companies. Assuming that they are your solicitor should be able to simultaneously deal with the two conveyancing matters but you should have a chat with you solicitor and communicate your expectations and requirements.

Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to pop into the offices of the bank conveyancing panel solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Cheshunt so that I can attend their offices if necessary.

Whereas this was necessary 12 years ago, most lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID Documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local solicitor, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Cheshunt.
