Will our conveyancer be making enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Neston.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Neston. There are those who buy a property in Neston, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their solicitors which can figure out the risks in Neston. The conventional set of information supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual question of the vendor to determine if the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a compensation claim resulting from an incorrect response. A buyer’s conveyancers will also carry out an environmental search. This should indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be conducted.
Me and my brother own a semi-detached Victorian property in Neston. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Clydesdale. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Neston and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Neston I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Neston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
How do I search for a Neston conveyancing solicitor on the mortgage company conveyancing panel? I have a car and am prepared to travel up to 15miles to meet the solicitor.
