AssumingI were to buy a freehold homein Cranham mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Cranham?
Any savings you would gain will be isolated to the Cranham conveyancing searches. The conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with your vendors property lawyer, stamp duty return, register the ownership etc. A slight saving might be made by not needing to register a charge but it will not be meaningful.
My friend advised me that if I am purchasing in Cranham I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
This is a search is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard Cranham conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about Cranham around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Cranham.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Cranham I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Cranham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
Do I need to be suspicious about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are suggesting an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Cranham conveyancing company?
As is the case with lots of professional services, often recommendations from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders might all put forward lawyers to use. On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to select your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that most banks specify a panel list of law firms you have to use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
