My partner and I are acquiring a newly built flat in Dolwyddelan and my conveyancer is advising me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the seller. I am under pressure to sign contracts and I would rather not prolong deal. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your solicitor. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial property in Dolwyddelan and how can you help?

The 1954 Act provides security of tenure to business leaseholders, granting the a statutory right to make a request to court for a renewal tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing practices who use the act for protection and assist with commercial conveyancing in Dolwyddelan

I am attracted to a two flats in Dolwyddelan which have in the region of forty five years unexpired on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

There are no two ways about it. A leasehold flat in Dolwyddelan is a deteriorating asset as a result of the reducing lease term. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it adversely affects the value of the property. The majority of buyers and mortgage companies, leases with less than eighty years become less and less marketable. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the property for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a residence with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Dolwyddelan conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that the agreed terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

I inherited a leasehold flat in Dolwyddelan, conveyancing was carried out November 1996. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding flats in Dolwyddelan with over 90 years remaining are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £60 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2081

With 57 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £28,500 and £33,000 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

I am in the process of purchasing my first property in Dolwyddelan. Conveyancing solicitor has been appointed. The broker advised that a survey is not appropriate as the property was only built 22 years ago.

You would be best advised to take a Home Buyer's Report. Given the property was built over a decade ago the property will be without a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may be enough. They will highlight any obvious issues and recommend further investigation if appropriate. Where there are any indications of material issues seek a full structural survey.
