It is is a decade since I acquired my home in Nag's Head. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I am unable to track down my title deeds. Is this a major issue?

You need not be too concerned. First there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they could be archived with the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Nag's Head involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.

Will my conveyancer be raising enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Nag's Head.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers conducting conveyancing in Nag's Head. Plenty of people will buy a property in Nag's Head, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Nag's Head. The conventional set of information supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard inquiry of the owner to discover whether the property has ever been flooded. In the event that the property has been flooded in past and is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages stemming from an incorrect answer. The purchaser’s solicitors may also carry out an environmental search. This should indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.

How does conveyancing in Nag's Head differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Nag's Head contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Nag's Head tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Nag's Head or who has acted in the same development.

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agency in Nag's Head where we have witnessed a number of leasehold sales derailed due to short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Nag's Head conveyancing solicitors. Please can you confirm whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

Having spent years of dialogue we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Nag's Head. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

if there is a absentee landlord or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to judgment on the price payable.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Nag's Head residence is 51 Lorne Road in November 2009. The price Payable as decided by the tribunal for the freehold reversion was £27,000. The valuation follows the order of the County Court made on 3 April 2008 granting a vesting order. This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 71 years.
