I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Denmark Hill and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Denmark Hill. We have lived in Denmark Hill for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Denmark Hill?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Denmark Hill. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I'm purchasing a new build house in Denmark Hill benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not reveal to my lawyer about this side-deal as it would impact my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Denmark Hill I like with open areas and station nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Denmark Hill in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
My aunt completed her conveyancing in Denmark Hill eight years ago. She has been married, widowed and has recently remarried. She wishes to sell the house in a couple of months. I think she will just be need to supply copies of her marriage papers to the conveyancing practitioner but she is worried it could frustrate the conveyancing. Is it worth updating the land title information for the property?
The is no need to update the register as long as you have the proof required to demonstrate how the change of name has come about.
Any purchaser’s solicitor should review the land registry details and requisition evidence to establish the change of name for example marriage certificates.
