Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Eccles

I am only a couple days away from an exchange on a flat in Eccles and my parents have transferred the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my conveyancer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I disclosed to the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?

Your solicitor is duty bound to check with the bank to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only notify this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

I have recentlybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Eccles for a purchase of a leasehold flat 10 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

My father has recommend that I appoint his conveyancing solicitors in Eccles. Do I follow his guidance?

There are no two ways about it the best way to choose a conveyancing practitioner is to have feedback from friends or family who have experience in using the solicitor you're are thinking of instructing.

I am attracted to a two apartments in Eccles both have about fifty years left on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

There is no doubt about it. A leasehold apartment in Eccles is a wasting asset as a result of the reducing lease term. The nearer the lease gets to its expiry date, the more it reduces the marketability of the premises. For most purchasers and banks, leases with less than 75 years become less and less attractive. On a more upbeat note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises 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 Eccles conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. A more straightforward and quicker method of extending would be to contact your landlord directly and sound him out on the prospect of extending the lease. They may agree to a smaller lump sum and an increase in the ground rent, but to shorter extension terms in return. 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.
