  • 4 Personal touch and a wealth of local knowledge are key benefits that you should look for when choosing conveyancing solicitors.

  • 5 Retaining the services of a high street Solicitor in the main results in a more bespoke service. When using a large conveyancing firm, your conveyancing is handled by a team of people who who update you by reading from their computer screens.

We were going to get a AIP from Yorkshire BS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Yorkshire BS recommend any Maulden solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Maulden solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Yorkshire BS through the process.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, RBS are being problematic. The Maulden solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but RBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I am buying a new build flat in Maulden. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Maulden

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Please supply a car parking plan. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one close by in Maulden I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Maulden suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term 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 property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Maulden. Conveyancing and The Royal Bank of Scotland mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing practitioner in Maulden who previously acted has long since retired. Any advice?

First contact the Land Registry to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. You do not need to instruct a Maulden conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

Maulden Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should ask before Purchasing

    What restrictions are contained in the Maulden Lease? How is the lease structured? Where a Maulden lease has fewer than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the salability of the apartment. It is worth checking with your bank that they are content with the length of the lease. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will probably have to extend the lease at some point and you need to have some idea of how much this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the premises for a couple of years in order to be legally able to exercise a lease extension.
