I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and have to leave my let out apartment in Crystal Palace by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase has just started. Can I complete in 5 weeks as I wish to avoid having to find temporary accommodation?
It is unwise to give notice for your tenancy until you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not already done so, update to your solicitor and ask them to they cajole the sellers solicitors, try to an agreed time frame that all parties will aim to achieve
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home can not be found. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Crystal Palace 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will know precisely where to locate all the appropriate documentation so you may buy or dispose of your property without a hitch. Where copies are not available, your conveyancer can put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on your property.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Crystal Palace. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Crystal Palace
Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Crystal Palace I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Crystal Palace in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
