We know of a number of auction lawyers we can connect you with those who can conduct auction conveyancing. Elmers End is just one of hundreds of locations in which our lawyers have a presence.

2 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Elmers End took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 property 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 am purchasing my first flat in Elmers End with a loan from Barnsley Building Society. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about this extras as it could jeopardize my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Elmers End I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Elmers End in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can 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 term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

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