Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Heacham

Will our solicitor be raising enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Heacham.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Heacham. There are those who buy a property in Heacham, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be carried out by the buyer or by their conveyancers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Heacham. The standard information sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the owner to find out if the premises has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the owner, then a buyer may issue a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers may also carry out an enviro report. This should indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be conducted.

Just bought a semi-detached house in Heacham , how long will it take for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Heacham conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the land registry aspects are addressed.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Heacham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently roughly 80% of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the buyer is living at the property so post completion formalities is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

How does conveyancing in Heacham differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Heacham approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because house builders in Heacham usually purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Heacham or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in Heacham I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Heacham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
