Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Rickmansworth

Will my lawyer be raising enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Rickmansworth.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Rickmansworth. There are those who acquire a property in Rickmansworth, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be undertaken by the buyer or by their conveyancers which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Rickmansworth. The standard information supplied to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard inquiry of the owner to determine if the property has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the seller, then a purchaser may bring a legal claim for losses resulting from an inaccurate reply. The buyer’s solicitors may also commission an environmental search. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be carried out.

I have recentlydiscovered that Stirling Law have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Rickmansworth for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

    Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Rickmansworth. Before diving in I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Rickmansworth - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I inherited a two-bedroom flat in Rickmansworth. In the absence of agreement between myself and the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the amount due for the purchase of the freehold?

if there is a absentee landlord or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to judgment on the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Rickmansworth residence is Flats 8, 11 and 15 Craigmore Court 46 Murray Road in December 2013. The tribunal held that the price payable by the Applicant tenant of Flat 8 to acquire an extended lease shall be £26,438 plus £1 to the intermediate lessee . The tribunal held that the price payable by the Applicant tenants of Flat 11 to acquire an extended lease shall be £26,791 plus £1 to the intermediate lessee. The tribunal held that the price payable by the Applicant tenant of Flat 15 to acquire an extended lease shall be £26,638 plus £1 to the intermediate lessee . This case affected 3 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 71 years.
