Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Elmers End

Willusing a Elmers End conveyancing lawyer make my purchase more efficient?

Existing third party relationships are another important factor to consider when choosing conveyancing solicitors. Elmers End conveyancers enjoy connections with lenders and selling, local authorities, valuers and other conveyancing firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Having years of experience in the local area is an advantage.

We are about to exchange buying a property in Elmers End but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the current proprietors in the sum of six thousand pounds by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of a side agreement but Santander are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?

Your solicitor that is on the Santander conveyancing panel is duty bound to advise Santander of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to report the reduction to Santander then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Santander and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Elmers End.

How does conveyancing in Elmers End differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Elmers End contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because developers in Elmers End typically acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Elmers End or who has acted in the same development.

Much as we are happy to recommend a Elmers End conveyancing lawyer the best way to choose a conveyancing practitioner is to have recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the firm that you are are thinking of instructing.

Last March I purchased a leasehold property in Elmers End. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

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

Most certainly. We are happy to put you in touch with a Elmers End conveyancing firm who can help.
