Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Newent is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Newent are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Newent you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Newent may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Newent with the purpose of saving time on the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Newent can be reduced if you instruct lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ solicitors.
  • Some Newent leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, you should notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand bank and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are able to meet the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their lawyers. The majority of landlords or managing agents in Newent levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should discover the fee that they propose to charge. The management information sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus reducing delays. The typical amount of time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most frequent reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Newent. If you have had any disputes with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved before the property is marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be nervous about purchasing a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over rather than unresolved. If you hold a share in a the freehold, you should ensure that you have the original share certificate. Organising a replacement share certificate can be a lengthy process and frustrates many a Newent conveyancing transaction. If a new share certificate is needed, do contact the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible.

I purchased a basement flat in Newent, conveyancing was carried out 5 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Newent with an extended lease are worth £171,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2100

With 79 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
