Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Clifton costs more?

The conveyancing charges for a leasehold property in Clifton is frequently greater when contrasted to a freehold transaction. This is due to the supplemental work necessary in corresponding with the landlord and managing agents to collate the evidence concerning whether the rent and maintenance fee have been paid and whether there are any major works due in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

How does conveyancing in Clifton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Clifton approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in Clifton typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Clifton or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Clifton ahead of instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may refuse to give a mortgage on this type of property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions from Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check via the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Clifton. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Clifton and how can you help?

The particular law that you refer to affords protection to business lessees, granting the a statutory right to apply to court for a renewal lease and remain in occupation at the end of the lease term. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Clifton is one of our numerous areas of the UK in which the firms we work with are located

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agent office in Clifton where we see a few flat sales derailed due to short leases. I have been given conflicting advice from local Clifton conveyancing firms. Can you clarify whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?

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 proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder 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 purchaser.

Clifton Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Questions you should consider before buying

    You should be aware that where the lease has no more than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the marketability of the flat. Check with your lender that they are willing to lend given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will almost definitely require a lease extension at some point and you need to have some idea of what this will be. Remember, in most cases you will need to own the residence for 24 months in order to be legally able to extend the lease. Is anyone aware of any major works in the planning that will likely add a premium to the service fees? How many years are left on the lease?
