I own a semi-detached Victorian house in Ryde. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Alliance & Leicester . I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Ryde and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial property in Ryde and how can your lawyers assist?
The 1954 Act gives a safeguard to business leaseholders, granting the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a renewal lease and continue in occupation at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act to your advantage and help with commercial conveyancing in Ryde
My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent told us that the vendor will only move forward if we instruct the agent's chosen conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Ryde
We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Ryde conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.
My partner and I may need to rent out our Ryde basement flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We used a Ryde conveyancing practice in 2004 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
A small minority of properties in Ryde do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
I acquired a split level flat in Ryde, conveyancing having been completed 6 years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable properties in Ryde with over 90 years remaining are worth £216,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2089
With just 68 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as costs.
The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
Our conveyancer in Ryde has informed me that he requires personal identification documents stating that this forms part of his legal duty as a solicitor on the lender Conveyancing panel. Can you confirm whether this is the case?
Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offence if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage, your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy the bank. This is not unique to conveyancing in Ryde
