I am purchasing a property for cash in Edmonton. I have lived for the last twelve years in Edmonton. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Edmonton conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he is duty bound to do this. One thing to take into account; if you are intend to dispose of the house in the future, it will likely be be of interest to your prospective buyer what the searches determine. Sometimes properties with day to day issues can still reveal detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Edmonton will provide you some practical advice in this regard.

I am purchasing a new build house in Edmonton with a loan from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my conveyancer about this extras as it could affect my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Edmonton I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Edmonton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

Planning to exchange soon on a leasehold property in Edmonton. Conveyancing lawyers inform me that they report fully within the next couple of days. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?

The report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Edmonton should include some of the following:

    Does the lease require carpeting throughout thus preventing wood flooring? Setting out your legal entitlements in respect of the communal areas in the building.By way of example, does the lease contain a right of way over a path or hallways? The landlord’s rights to access the flat. You should be made aware that your landlord has rights of access as well as be informed how much notice must be provided. Your lawyers should enable you to have an understanding of the insurance requirements Advice as to the provision as set out in the lease to pay service charges - with regard to both the building, and the wider rights a tenant has
For a comprehensive list of information to be contained in your report on your leasehold property in Edmonton please enquire of your conveyancer in ahead of your conveyancing in Edmonton.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can a leaseholder apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Edmonton conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Edmonton conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Vesting Order and Purchase of freehold decision for a Edmonton residence is Ground Floor Flat 4A Baronet Road in February 2010. Following a vesting order by Edmonton County Court on 23rd December 2008 (case number 8ED064) the Tribunal decided that the price that the Applicant for the freehold interest should pay is £8,689.00 This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired term was 80.01 years.

Fiveweeks into purchasing a house in Edmonton. Conveyancing lawyer has told us the title is "Leasehold". Should this make a difference on the marketability of the property?

Edmonton conveyancing does not in most situations involve leasehold houses. The crucial consideration here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a peppercorn rent, it's essentially freehold, so it’s unlikely to affect the value too much.

At the other end of the spectrum, if it's, say, Sixty years it is bound to have a significant impact on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be set out in the lease provided to your property lawyer.
