Should our solicitor be asking questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Hammersmith.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Hammersmith. Plenty of people will purchase a property in Hammersmith, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Hammersmith. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard question of the owner to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer may commence a compensation claim stemming from an inaccurate reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers will also commission an enviro search. This will disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be conducted.
Me and my brother have a terraced Edwardian property in Hammersmith. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Coventry Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Hammersmith and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Hammersmith I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hammersmith suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Hammersmith. Before I get started I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Hammersmith - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can one apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Hammersmith conveyancing firm to help?
Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a Hammersmith conveyancing firm who can help.
