Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Goffs Oak

Our Goffs Oak conveyancer has uncovered a difference when comparing the information in the valuation report and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is duty bound to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s approach right?

Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

I just bought a flat at auction in Goffs Oak. Conveyancing is necessary. What happens now?

Given that you are now exchanged you must choose a conveyancing solicitor as a matter of priority as you will have a tight deadline in which to complete the purchase. Every auction property will have an associated auction set of papers. This should include most,if not all of the documents that your solicitor will need. In the case of leasehold property the legal papers may contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork specific to a leasehold property. You should hand this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding in order to complete on the date specified in the contract.

We had chosen solicitors locally in Goffs Oak on the Coventry BS solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a separate charge for the legal aspects of the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Coventry BS?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your lawyer can charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Coventry BS but by your Goffs Oak solicitor. Some firms on the Coventry BS panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

I purchased a renovated Victorian house in Goffs Oak. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. Is it worth asking Lloyds TSB Bank to clarify?

You need to read 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 Goffs Oak and other areas of 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 lenders. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Goffs Oak. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Goffs Oak

    Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Goffs Oak I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Goffs Oak in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

Frank (my husband) and I may need to rent out our Goffs Oak 1st floor flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We used a Goffs Oak conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

Your lease dictates relations between the landlord and you the flat owner; specifically, it will set out if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. Most leases in Goffs Oak do not prevent an absolute prevention of subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the sublease.

I am the registered owner of a leasehold flat in Goffs Oak, conveyancing formalities finalised 10 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent properties in Goffs Oak with an extended lease are worth £211,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2089

With 67 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £10,500 and £12,000 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
