Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by the lender or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers.

Should my lawyer be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Hurst Green.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Hurst Green. Plenty of people will buy a property in Hurst Green, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their lawyers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Hurst Green. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the seller to determine if the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser may issue a legal claim for losses stemming from an inaccurate reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers may also commission an enviro search. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be initiated.

I purchased a garden flat in Hurst Green, conveyancing formalities finalised 9 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent properties in Hurst Green with an extended lease are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £60 charged once a year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2081

With 57 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £28,500 and £33,000 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
