I have finally had an offer on a flat in Sacriston accepted, the sellers do nevertheless have a tied purchase. The sellers have offered on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Sacriston. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS started?

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Sacriston conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Yorkshire BS approved list. Regarding the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some buyers will apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their property lawyer to press on with searches.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Sacriston. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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 conveyancing.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Sacriston

    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. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. 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 Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Sacriston is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Sacriston are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
