Is there a reason to instruct a Horsford conveyancing firm given that online alternatives are less overpriced?

I am intent on selling our home in Horsford and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any high street Horsford lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Horsford. We have lived in Horsford for many years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I have recentlybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Horsford for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest method to see if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Horsford conveyancing specialists.

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Horsford I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Horsford for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

Completion is due on our sale of a £275,000 apartment in Horsford in just under a week. The management company has quoted £396 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Horsford?

Horsford conveyancing on leasehold flats often requires the purchaser’s solicitor sending questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to respond to such questions most will be willing to do so. They are entitled to levy a reasonable administration fee for responding to enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some cases it exceeds £800. The administration charge demanded by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration fees, without which the charge is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that one has no choice but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Horsford - Examples of Queries before Purchasing

    If a Horsford lease has no more than 80 years it will affect the marketability of the apartment. It is worth checking with your lender that they are happy with remaining years on the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably require a lease extension at some point and you need to have some idea of how much this would cost. For most Horsfordlease extensions you will be be obliged to have been the owner of the residence for 24 months in order to be eligible to exercise a lease extension. Please tell me if there are any major works on the horizon that will increase the maintenance costs? Best to be warned if a new roof is being installed or some other significant cost is due in the foreseeable future that will be shared between the tenants and will materially increase the the maintenance costs or result in a one time payment.
