The mortgage offer from NatWest for the refinancing of my 4 bedroom apartment is coming within the next few days. Can you recommend a low cost conveyancing lawyer in Kingsland?
You are on the wrong site if you are in need of the lowest fares for conveyancing solicitors in Kingsland. Our intention is to offer affordable conveyancing but we do not aim to work with the cheapest lawyers. Resist the temptation to appoint organisations teasing you with £99 conveyancing in Kingsland. Optimistically, in being led by cheap conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst it will result in you being stung for extras and still not get the service you were hoping for.
Do the conveyancing lawyers that you recommend handle attended exchange conveyancing in Kingsland?
We do have a number of conveyancing specialists who can conduct attended exchanges. You should call us to secure a costs illustration and details as to availability.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Kingsland and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any high street Kingsland conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Kingsland. Having lived in Kingsland for six years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You must enquire of 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Kingsland. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Kingsland
If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Kingsland I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Kingsland suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Kingsland and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to provides a safeguard to business leaseholders, granting the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a renewal tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Kingsland is one of the many areas of the UK in which the firms we work with have offices
