Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Repton

Due to complete my purchase in Repton next Monday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the mortgage company. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?

All property lawyers on acting for mortgage companies would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. These obligations are not limited to conveyancing in Repton.

I am considering applying for a Barclays mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Repton with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Barclays ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Barclays conveyancing panel, but Barclays would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

About to purchase a new build apartment in Repton. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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.

    Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please supply a car parking plan. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Repton I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Repton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will 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 twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Your report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Repton should include some of the following:

    Repair and maintenance of the premises The landlord’s rights to access the flat. You should be made aware that your landlord has rights of access as well as be informed how much notice must be provided.

Rent payments - what is due and when is collected, and be on notice if this is subject to change You need to be informed what constitutes a Nuisance in the lease

I invested in buying a leasehold flat in Repton, conveyancing formalities finalised May 1997. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent flats in Repton with an extended lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2080

With just 59 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £20,900 and £24,200 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
