Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stallingborough

I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (five years built) in Stallingborough. The vast majority the appartments have already been disposed of. Is it strictly necessary to order conveyancing searches as part of conveyancing in Stallingborough?

You would be putting yourself at risk in refusing to carrying out Stallingborough conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would seriously advise in the strongest possible terms that your lawyer conducts them. Where speed and cost are top of your issues you should consider with your lawyer about the options such as lack of search insurance available to you

Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Stallingborough?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Stallingborough your lawyer will ask you put them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. If any deposit is as part of the total price then this will be asked for immediately prior to exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is due should be transferred shortly before completion.

Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that could affect a commercial estate in Stallingborough?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Stallingborough will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers spend in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Stallingborough. The report provides definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Stallingborough.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Stallingborough it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. Failure to identify developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately may result in delays to Stallingborough commercial conveyancing transactions as well as present a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not carried out for residential conveyancing in Stallingborough.

How does conveyancing in Stallingborough differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Stallingborough approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because house builders in Stallingborough tend to purchase the land, 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 property lawyers 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 Stallingborough or who has acted in the same development.

I opted to have a survey done on a house in Stallingborough in advance of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements from Nationwide. Should you wish to call us we can investigate further via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Stallingborough. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I am attracted to a two flats in Stallingborough both have in the region of forty five years unexpired on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

There are no two ways about it. A leasehold flat in Stallingborough is a wasting asset as a result of the reducing lease term. The closer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it adversely affects the marketability of the premises. The majority of buyers and banks, leases with less than eighty years become less and less attractive. 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 premises 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 a property 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 Stallingborough conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. A more straightforward and quicker method of extending would be to contact your landlord directly and sound him out on the prospect of extending 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.

I bought a studio flat in Stallingborough, conveyancing having been completed October 2004. How much will my lease extension cost? Similar properties in Stallingborough with a long lease are worth £185,000. The ground rent is £65 per annum. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2084

With only 60 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £20,000 and £23,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
