Should my conveyancer be raising questions concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Netherne.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Netherne. There are those who acquire a house in Netherne, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Netherne. The standard completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard inquiry of the owner to find out if the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply. A purchaser’s solicitors will also conduct an enviro search. This will indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be made.
I am buying a new build apartment in Netherne. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Netherne
Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Netherne I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Netherne for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a leasehold purchase having been directed to solicitors by the selling agent to carry out the conveyancing in Netherne. I am am extremely dissatisfied with the quality of service. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?

In the event that it has you need to inform them of the replacement conveyancer and ensure the offer are issued to the new lawyers. Your conveyancer should be on the lenders panel to avoid supplemental fees and frustration. So that should be your starting point.

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Netherne. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
