Will my conveyancer be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Helston.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers dealing with homes in Helston. Some people will acquire a house in Helston, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a house 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 during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that can be initiated by the purchaser or by their solicitors which can figure out the risks in Helston. The standard information sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the owner to determine if the premises has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an incorrect reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers may also order an environmental report. This will disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be carried out.

How does conveyancing in Helston differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Helston come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Helston usually acquire the site, 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 conveyancers 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 Helston or who has acted in the same development.

How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business offices in Helston and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act gives a safeguard to business lessees, giving them the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term.

The benefit of a high street Helston conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, deliver your identification documents and pester them if necessary. Having local Helston know how is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust instructed your friend and they were content that should surpass using an unknown Helston conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Helston. Before I get started I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Helston - 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 purchased a split level flat in Helston, conveyancing having been completed May 2010. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension?

With 55 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £31,400 and £36,200 plus legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
