Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Egremont

Last February we completed a house move in Egremont. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Egremont?

It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Egremont. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor fills in a questionnaire known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information ends up being inaccurate, then you may have a claim against the owner for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Egremont.

I am buying a new build flat in Egremont. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Egremont

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business offices in Egremont and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act affords a safeguard to commercial tenants, granting the a statutory right to make a request to court for a new tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease reaches an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing solicitors who use the act for protection and help with commercial conveyancing in Egremont

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the selling agent informed us that the owners will only proceed if we use the agent's recommended conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Egremont

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to use your preferred Egremont conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will give their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by head office.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Egremont. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Egremont - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars 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 own a leasehold flat in Egremont, conveyancing was carried out in 1995. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Similar properties in Egremont with an extended lease are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 levied per year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2073

With just 52 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £29,500 and £34,000 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
