My wife and I are about to exchange buying a property in Elm Park but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the current proprietors in the sum of £3k in the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of amending the contract yet Principality are not allowing this. Why were they involved?
The solicitor that is on a Principality conveyancing panel is required to inform Principality of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to report the price change to Principality then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Principality and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Elm Park.
It has been three months since my purchase conveyancing in Elm Park took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 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 premises 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 have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Elm Park I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Elm Park for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
