Will my solicitor be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Kings Langley.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Kings Langley. There are those who acquire a house in Kings Langley, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Kings Langley. The standard property information forms sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the owner to discover whether the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser may issue a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading answer. A purchaser’s conveyancers will also carry out an enviro report. This should disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be conducted.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Kings Langley with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it would adversely affect my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Flying freeholds in Kings Langley are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kings Langley may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

I only have 72 years remaining on my flat in Kings Langley. I need to get lease extension but my landlord is absent. What are my options?

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you have done all that could be expected to find the landlord. On the whole an enquiry agent may be helpful to try and locate and to produce an expert document to be used as proof that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer both on proving the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court overseeing Kings Langley.

I acquired a 1 bedroom flat in Kings Langley, conveyancing was carried out in 1997. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Kings Langley with an extended lease are worth £207,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £60 invoiced annually. The lease ends on 21st October 2079

With only 57 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to range between £28,500 and £33,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more 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 considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
