Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Rottingdean

We previously instructed conveyancers located in Rottingdean on the Nationwide solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further fee for the legal aspects of the Nationwide mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Nationwide?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your property lawyer may charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by Nationwide but by your Rottingdean conveyancing practitioner. Numerous firms on the Nationwide panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.

Can I be sure that the Rottingdean conveyancing solicitor on the HSBC panel is any good?

We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your transaction.

Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Rottingdean

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. 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. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor apartment in Rottingdean. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just had a quarterly service charge demand – what should I do?

It best that you clear the invoice as normal as all rents and service invoices will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, 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 management companies 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.

I own a garden flat in Rottingdean, conveyancing having been completed December 1997. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Rottingdean with an extended lease are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2098

You have 76 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues 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 without first seeking the advice of a professional.

It is possible that there is a residents association that owners pay into to maintain the road. If one exists, the road should be maintained and look better than publicly maintained.
