Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Heath

    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. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Heath I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Heath for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Heath. I have land on a web site which looks to be the perfect solution If it is possible to get all formalities done via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Heath. Conveyancing and Accord Mortgages Ltd mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing solicitor in Heath who previously acted has long since retired. Do I pay?

First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to instruct a Heath conveyancing firm to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

Heath Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Questions you should ask Prior to Purchasing

    Can you tell me if there are any major works in the near future that will add a premium to the service fees? The prefered form of lease arrangement is a share of the freehold. In this situation the lessees benefit from control and even though a managing agent is often employed where the building is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves. How much is the maintenance charge and ground rent on the property?
