The sellers of the house we are purchasing are using a conveyancing practitioner in Denton who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a deposit of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?

There are a couple of main concerns with executing a lock out contract (sometimes referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it diverts attention away from progressing with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not particularly popular amongst Denton conveyancing lawyers as a result. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is not likely to win an injunction to prohibit the vendor selling to another buyer, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted charges and, in limited circumstances, the additional payment of damages.

Do commercial conveyancing searches reveal planned roadworks that may affect a commercial premises in Denton?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Denton will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers spend in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Denton. The report sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Denton.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Denton it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately could cause delays to Denton commercial conveyancing deals as well as present a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not ordered for domestic conveyancing in Denton.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Denton I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Denton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I am a fortnight into a residential purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the local agent to carry out the conveyancing in Denton. I am am very dissatisfied with the level of service. Could you help me find new solicitors?

A solicitor would need to be very poor in order to consider replacing them. Has your loan offer been issued? If so you need to make them aware of the new contact details and ensure the offer are issued to the new lawyers. Your conveyancer needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid escalating fees and complications. That should be your starting point.

I’m about to sell my ground floor flat in Denton. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently received a half-yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the invoice as you normally would as all ground rent and maintenance payments will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I purchased a garden flat in Denton, conveyancing was carried out April 2001. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding properties in Denton with over 90 years remaining are worth £185,000. The ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2081

With just 60 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
