Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oakhill

Do the conveyancing practitioners that are recommend execute auction conveyancing in Oakhill?

We know of a few niche solicitors we can connect you with those specialising in auction conveyancing. Oakhill is one of hundreds of locations where our lawyers cover.

3 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Oakhill took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Oakhill differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Oakhill approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because developers in Oakhill typically purchase the land, 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 Oakhill or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Oakhill I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Oakhill in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
