AssumingI was to buy a simple residential housein Exminster for cash and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Exminster?
The sole saving you would make on is the disbursement for searches. A conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the vendors conveyancer, SDLT submission, register the ownership etc. A marginal saving might be made by not needing to register a charge however it will not be a lot.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Exminster. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Exminster
Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Exminster is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Exminster are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Exminster you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Exminster may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
I have recently realised that I have Sixty One years remaining on my flat in Exminster. I now want to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What are my options?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the magistrate. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to locate the landlord. In some cases an enquiry agent may be useful to carry out a search and to produce a report which can be used as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing Exminster.
I invested in buying a 1 bedroom flat in Exminster, conveyancing having been completed January 1996. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding flats in Exminster with an extended lease are worth £222,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2091
With just 70 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
