Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Drybrook

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Drybrook concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Drybrook with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about the deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

Am I better off to instruct a Drybrook conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can carry out the conveyancing however they are based 400miles drive away.

The benefit of a high street Drybrook conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, hand in your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and in the main were impressed that must outweigh using an unknown Drybrook conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Drybrook. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Drybrook - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I acquired a 1 bedroom flat in Drybrook, conveyancing was carried out October 1995. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent flats in Drybrook with an extended lease are worth £192,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease expires on 21st October 2076

With just 54 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £32,300 and £37,400 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
