Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sandbach

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Sandbach. Is there a reason why all Sandbach solicitors aren't included on all bank panels?

Mortgage companies point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The removal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This led to banks and building societies removing less reputable firms from their books of approved lawyers .

I am attracted to a two apartments in Sandbach both have approximately forty five years unexpired on the leases. Do I need to be concerned?

There are no two ways about it. A leasehold apartment in Sandbach is a deteriorating asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to its expiry date, the more it adversely affects the salability of the premises. For most buyers and lenders, leases with under eighty years become less and less marketable. On a more upbeat note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the property for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of premises with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Sandbach conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. They may agree to a smaller lump sum and an increase in the ground rent, but to shorter extension terms in return. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Sandbach - Sample of Questions you should consider Prior to buying

    For most Sandbach leaseholds the cost for major works are not wrapped into the service charges, although some managing agents in Sandbach ask leaseholders to pay into a sinking fund created for the specific purpose of building a fund for larger works. The best form of lease arrangement is where the freehold interest is in the ownership of the leaseholders. In this arrangement the lessees enjoy control and even though a managing agent is usually retained if it is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent employed by the leaseholders. Its a good idea to find out as much as you can concerning the managing agents as they can either make life much easier or much more difficult. As the proprietor of a leasehold property you are frequently in the clutches of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to every day issues like the upkeep of the common parts. Don't be shy to ask other tenants whether they are happy with them. In conclusion, be sure you understand the dates that you are obliged pay the service charge to the appropriate party and specifically how they are spending that money.
