My lawyer has identified a defect with the lease for the property we are buying in Daventry. The other side have put forward title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our property lawyer has advised that he must check that the mortgage company is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the bank?
Notwithstanding that you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their requirements for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. You and the bank are the client. The appropriate lender specifications have to be complied with.
I have todaybecome aware that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Daventry for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Daventry conveyancing specialists.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Daventry I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Daventry for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years will be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
