Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Ferryside. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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 conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Ferryside

    Please supply a car parking plan. 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. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Ferryside I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ferryside in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

Taking into account that I am about to spend 450k on a terraced house in Ferryside I wish to talk to a lawyer concerning thehouse move prior to instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we recommend - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer who will be carrying out your conveyancing in Ferryside.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important person, not a matter number. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for your conveyancing in Ferryside should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 62 years unexpired on my flat in Ferryside. I need to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What options are available to me?

On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to track down the landlord. In some cases a specialist should be useful to try and locate and prepare an expert document which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor both on investigating the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Ferryside.

I own a 1st floor flat in Ferryside, conveyancing formalities finalised 9 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Ferryside with a long lease are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2098

You have 75 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as costs.

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 a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

My mortgage broker has suggested using their solicitor for the conveyancing in Ferryside - Is it not simpler better to just instruct them?

This is not necessarily the case and you are entitled to instruct whichever solicitor you decide for your Ferryside home move. The lawyer recommended by a 3rd party adviser may not always be the right property lawyer, they may suggest their preferred conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your solicitor and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
