My offer on a semi in St Leonard Shoreditch has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have placed an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in St Leonard Shoreditch. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Nationwide going?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, St Leonard Shoreditch conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Nationwide approved list. As to the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market many buyers would apply for a home loan with Nationwide and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in St Leonard Shoreditch.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in St Leonard Shoreditch I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in St Leonard Shoreditch in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

How do I use your search tool to find a conveyancing lawyer in St Leonard Shoreditch on the approved list for my bank?

First select a mortgage company such as Barclays , The Mortgage Works or Platform Home Loans Ltd then type in your preferred area such as St Leonard Shoreditch. Conveyancing practices in St Leonard Shoreditch and across England and Wales should be identified.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in St Leonard Shoreditch with the aim of expediting the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in St Leonard Shoreditch can be avoided where you get in touch lawyers as soon as your agents start advertising the property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation which will be required by the purchasers’ lawyers.
  • You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but you should verify this via your solicitors. A purchaser's lawyer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the lease term is below 75 years. It is therefore essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should ensure that you are holding the original share document. Arranging a re-issued share certificate is often a lengthy formality and slows down many a St Leonard Shoreditch home move. Where a reissued share certificate is necessary, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (where relevant) for this as soon as possible. Many freeholders or managing agents in St Leonard Shoreditch levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should discover the actual amount of the charges. The management pack can be applied for on or before finding a buyer, thus reducing delays. The average time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most common cause of delay in leasehold conveyancing in St Leonard Shoreditch. A minority of St Leonard Shoreditch leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand bank and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their lawyers.

We have reached the end of our tether in seeking a lease extension in St Leonard Shoreditch. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a St Leonard Shoreditch conveyancing firm who can help.
