    In the main the outlay for major works are not incorporated into the maintenance charges, albeit that some managing agents in Duxford obliged tenants to pay into a sinking fund created for the specific purpose of establishing a fund for major works. You should be aware that where the lease has no more than eighty years it will impact the marketability of the apartment. Check with your mortgage company that they are happy with remaining years on the lease. A short lease means that you will most likely have to extend the lease at some point and it is worth discovering what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you will be required to have owned the premises for a couple of years before you are eligible to extend the lease. It is important to be aware whether a new roof is being put on or some other significant cost is pending to be shared between the tenants and will materially increase the the maintenance fees or result in a specific payment.

Our conveyancer in Duxford has identified a defect with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Duxford. The other side have suggested defective title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our solicitor has advised that as he is on the bank conveyancing panel he must check that the lender is happy with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?

The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the mortgage company are the client. A precondition to being on the bank approved panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects will the lease so that the bank can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected . Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
