I have todaydiscovered that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Ledbury for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to see if the property 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 Ledbury conveyancing specialists.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Ledbury I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Ledbury in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

Is it best to use a Ledbury conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can conduct the legal formalities however his firm is located over three hundred kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a local Ledbury conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute documents, deliver your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local insight which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and they were content that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Ledbury conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Ledbury what are the most common lease problems?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Ledbury. All leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are wrong. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    A duty to insure the building Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.

You may encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Nationwide Building Society, Bank of Scotland, and Nottingham Building Society all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the buyer to withdraw.

I own a ground floor flat in Ledbury, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Ledbury with over 90 years remaining are worth £170,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2102

You have 78 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £7,600 and £8,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above 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 this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you 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.
