I am about to put an offer on a leasehold flat in Fulwell. The property agents advise that it is the norm for flats in Fulwell to have less than 75 years unexpired on the lease. I am expecting a mortgage with The Mortgage Works. Is this going to be acceptable if the lease has 70 years left.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are obtaining a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. The Mortgage Works have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 13/8/2019 the requirements read as follows :

Minimum unexpired lease term is 70 years with 30 years remaining at the end of the mortgage term.

My wife and I own a semi-detached Victorian house in Fulwell. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Coventry Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Fulwell and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Fulwell before retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not give a mortgage on a flying freehold house.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Nationwide. If you call us we can look into this further via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Fulwell. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Fulwell especially if they are familiar with such properties in Fulwell.

I am selling my house. My former conveyancers closed down. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Fulwell if that makes things easier.

Please use our search tool to help you find a solicitor for your conveyancing in Fulwell. We have connected thousands of home buyers and sellers with regulated solicitors to ensure that the legalities of their house move runs with a minimum of fuss.

I am 14 days into a leasehold purchase having been directed to a firm by the selling agent to carry out the conveyancing in Fulwell. We are not happy. Could you help me find new solicitors?

A solicitor would need to be really poor in order to consider replacing them. Has your loan offer been generated? In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and get the offer are issued to the new lawyers. The conveyancer should be on the mortgage company panel to avoid added fees and frustration. That should be your starting point. Our find a solicitor tool should help you find a bank approved conveyancer for your conveyancing in Fulwell
