Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Silverton 10 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?

It is easy to carry out a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and order up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Silverton with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The sellers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent told me not inform my solicitor about this side-deal as it will jeopardize my mortgage with Platform Home Loans Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Silverton. I happened to discover a web site which appears to be the perfect answer If it is possible to get all formalities done via web that would be ideal. Should I be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

I am looking at a two apartments in Silverton which have in the region of 50 years left on the lease term. Do I need to be concerned?

There are no two ways about it. A leasehold apartment in Silverton is a wasting asset as a result of the reducing lease term. The nearer the lease gets to its expiry date, the more it adversely affects the value of the property. The majority of purchasers 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 Silverton 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. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. 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 Silverton - Examples of Questions you should ask before buying

    Who are the managing agents? It would be prudent to find out as much as possible concerning the managing agents as they can either make life much easier or uncomfortable. Being a leasehold owner you are frequently in the clutches of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to practical issues such as the cleanliness of the common parts. Don't be afraid to ask other tenants if they are happy with them. On a final note, investigate as to the dates that the maintenance fees are due to the appropriate party and precisely what it includes. Is the freehold owned jointly by the leaseholders?

Me and my husband are FTB’s just having agreed a price on a property in Silverton, and are now looking to get solicitors lined up. I have made use of the various rating tools and the results are from all across the the UK. Is it essential to have a Silverton conveyancing practitioner local to the prospective property? We are willing to do everything electronically, but I assume at some point we may be required to visit the property lawyer's office to sign contracts?

The conveyancing practitioner does not need to be in Silverton, but choosing local means that you have the option to attend their offices if needed, for instance, if a signature is needed urgently. Also, a Silverton solicitor have established relationships with local agents and (if the vendor has chosen a local conveyancing practitioner) with them, which will help smooth the process.
