Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Saltney

How does conveyancing in Saltney differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Saltney approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Saltney typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Saltney or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Saltney is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Saltney are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Saltney you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Saltney may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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 property.

My husband and I may need to sub-let our Saltney basement flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Saltney conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

Your lease governs relations between the landlord and you the leaseholder; specifically, it will set out if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in Saltney do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would adversely affect the market value the flat. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the sublease.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Saltney - A selection of Queries before buying

    The prefered form of lease arrangement is a share of the freehold. In this arrangement the leaseholders have control and notwithstanding that a managing agent is frequently retained where the building is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent is directed by the tenants. It would be sensible to find out as much as you can about the managing agents as they can either make your living at the property much simpler or problematic. As the proprietor of a leasehold property you are often in the clutches of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to daily issues such as the upkeep of the communal areas. Ask other tenants whether they are happy with their management. On a final note, be sure you know the dates that the service fees are due to the appropriate party and specifically what you get for your money. It is important to be aware whether window replacement or some other significant cost is coming up that will be shared amongst the tenants and could well materially impact the level of the service fees or necessitate a one off invoice.
