Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Laindon

After what seems like an age a loan agreement from NatWest for the refinancing of my single room maisonette is expected within the next few days. Can you recommend a cheap conveyancing practitioner in Laindon?

This site is not designed to assist those in their quest for a cheap conveyancing in Laindon. Our aim is to provide value for money conveyancing but we do not advertise as being the cheapest. Avoid the trap of appointing organisations seducing you with ninety nine pound conveyancing in Laindon. In your best case scenario, in choosing a lawyer for low cost conveyancing, you will receive what you pay for and at worst you will end up spending a lot in additional fees and still not receive the service you were hoping for.

When can the exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Laindon and do I need to be at the solicitors office?

Where you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Laindon you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we recommend offer a nationwide conveyancing service and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the purchase agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract simply enables the firm to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Laindon)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Laindon. My lender is Virgin

A colleague recommended that if I am purchasing in Laindon I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Laindon Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning Laindon.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Laindon is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Laindon are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Laindon you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Laindon may determine 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 property.

I am looking at a two flats in Laindon which have in the region of fifty years left on the leases. Will this present a problem?

There is no doubt about it. A leasehold apartment in Laindon is a deteriorating asset as a result of the shortening lease. The closer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it adversely affects the salability of the property. For most purchasers and lenders, leases with less than eighty years become less and less attractive. On a more upbeat note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of premises with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Laindon conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. They may agree to a smaller lump sum and an increase in the ground rent, but to shorter extension terms in return. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

I inherited a basement flat in Laindon, conveyancing was carried out 10 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar properties in Laindon with an extended lease are worth £206,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2088

You have 66 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £12,400 and £14,200 plus professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
