Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North End

Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in North End costs more?

North End leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

Should my solicitor be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in North End.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in North End. There are those who purchase a property in North End, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their lawyers which should figure out the risks in North End. The conventional set of property information forms given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the owner to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer may commence a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading response. A buyer’s lawyers may also commission an environmental report. This will disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be carried out.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in North End. Conveyancing is daunting 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 conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in North End

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden apartment in North End. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have recently received a yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?

It best that you discharge the service charge as you normally would as all ground rent and service charges should be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

Notwithstanding our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in trying to reach an agreement for a lease extension in North End. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Where there is a missing freeholder or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the premium.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a North End residence is Various @ Colombus Square in January 2012. the Tribunal calculated the premiums to be paid for new leases for each of the flats in Mariners Walk to be £3822 and the premium to be paid for the new lease of 2 Knights Court to be £4439. This case affected 13 flats. The unexpired term was 76 years.

We are soon to complete buying a house in North End but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have agreed reparation from the vendor of £2k in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet the lender will not permit this. Why were they involved?

Your lawyer being on a bank conveyancing panel is required to inform the mortgage company of any variations to the sale price. In the event that you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to notify the price change to your bank then they would have to discontinue acting for you and the bank.
