The deeds to my house can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Gidea Park 5 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?
These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will be aware exactly where to look for all the suitable documentation so you may purchase or dispose of your house without any difficulty.

I'm buying a new build house in Gidea Park with a mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it would adversely affect my mortgage with Yorkshire Building Society. Is this normal?.
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.
What does commercial conveyancing in Gidea Park cover?

By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the assignment of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements.

I am attracted to a couple of apartments in Gidea Park which have in the region of fifty years remaining on the lease term. Will this present a problem?
There are no two ways about it. A leasehold flat in Gidea Park is a wasting asset as a result of the shortening lease. The closer the lease gets to its expiry date, the more it reduces the marketability of the property. The majority of buyers and mortgage companies, leases with less than 75 years become less and less attractive. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a residence with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Gidea Park conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.
