Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Henbury

Do lawyers request money on account when it comes to conveyancing in Henbury?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Henbury your lawyer will ask you place them with monies to cover the search fees. Generally this is needed to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any down payment is as part of the purchase price then this should be required immediately in advance of contracts are exchanged. The closing balance that is needed should be sent to your lawyer a few days prior to the completion date.

We are purchasing a property and the solicitor has identified Chancel Repair to which the property could be obligated to pay because it falls into the area of such a church. He has mentioned insurance. Is this really appropriate for conveyancing in Henbury

Unless a previous acquisition of the house took place post 12 October 2013 you can expect lawyers delivering conveyancing in Henbury to remain recommending a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Henbury I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Henbury in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities 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 about this.

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

The 1954 Act gives security of tenure to commercial tenants, giving them the right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of an expired lease. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act for protection and assist with commercial conveyancing in Henbury

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Henbury. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Henbury - 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.

Henbury Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should ask Prior to buying

    You should want to discover as much as you can about the company managing the block as they will either make living at the property much simpler or uncomfortable. Being a leasehold owner you will be at the mercy of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to day to day issues like the cleanliness of the common parts. You should not be shy to ask other people what they think of them. On a final note, be sure you understand the dates that the maintenance fees are due to the managing agents and specifically what you get for your money. Is there a share of the freehold? Who is in charge of the block?

I have been informed by various family members that it may take 6-8 weeks for Henbury conveyancing to complete.This was a month ago. The property information was only forwarded from the vendors property lawyer yesterday so now does it countdown?

You should not rely on completing on a set date until exchange of contracts takes place. Regardless of the promises the people you are acquiring from or selling to make, or your estate agent provides don't count on them. More stress is caused to clients trying to move home by unfulfilled assurances than any other factor when it comes to conveyancing in Henbury.
