Last January we completed a house move in Cleckheaton. We have noticed several issues with the property which we suspect were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been carried out for conveyancing in Cleckheaton?

The query is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Cleckheaton. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor fills in a questionnaire known as a SPIF. answers ends up being misleading, you could possibly take legal action against the owner for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Cleckheaton.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Cleckheaton. I have a mortgage offer with Coventry BS. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Coventry BS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.

I purchased a semi-detached Georgian property in Cleckheaton. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Cleckheaton and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agency in Cleckheaton where we see a number of leasehold sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have received contradictory information from local Cleckheaton conveyancing firms. Please can you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can initiate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

Cleckheaton Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Queries before Purchasing

    How much is the yearly service fee and ground rent? If a Cleckheaton lease has less than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the marketability of the flat. Check with your lender that they are happy with remaining years on the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely require a lease extension at some point and it is worth finding out what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would be be obliged to have owned the property for 24 months before you are entitled to extend the lease. Does the lease contain onerous restrictions?
