Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Downham is more expensive?

The conveyancing charges for a leasehold property in Downham is inevitably higher than on a freehold transaction. This is due to the supplemental time required in liaising with the freeholder and managing agents to collate the evidence concerning whether the rent and maintenance fee have been paid and whether there are any major works due in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the block.

I am selling my flat in Downham. Will the solicitor need to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently at the moment.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Downham is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Downham are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Downham you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Downham may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

I have just appointed agents to market my basement apartment in Downham. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

It best that you clear the service charge as normal given that all ground rent and service payments should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such issues? Can you recommend a Downham conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?

You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Downham conveyancing firm who can help.
