Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Strawberry Hill costs more?

In short, leasehold conveyancing in Strawberry Hill and elsewhere usually necessitates extra hours of investigation compared to freehold transactions. This includes checking the lease terms, corresponding with the landlord about the service of appropriate notices, securing current service charge and management information, procuring the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different leaseholders have owned the lease since it was first entered into.

I am selling my flat in Strawberry Hill. Will my solicitor need to be on the RBS conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the RBS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently in recent years.

I am assisting my mother sell her property in Strawberry Hill. Will the conveyancer order an EPC or it is for me to coordinate?

Following the demise of HIPs, energy performance certificates was retained a mandatory part of selling a property. An EPC needs to be to hand in advance of the property being advertised. It is not as aspect of the sale process that lawyers ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Strawberry Hill conveyancing practitioner they might be able to arrange EPC’s due to their contacts with reputable local assessors

A relative informed me that in purchasing a property in Strawberry Hill there could be a number of restrictions prohibiting external alterations to the property. Is this right?

We are aware of a number of properties in Strawberry Hill which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Strawberry Hill should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

I can not work out if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Strawberry Hill bank branch on a couple of occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Strawberry Hill conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the solicitor is on the mortgage company approved list, they must follow the CML Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Strawberry Hill is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Strawberry Hill are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Strawberry Hill you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Strawberry Hill may decide 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 residence.

I own a leasehold house in Strawberry Hill. Conveyancing and TSB mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing solicitor in Strawberry Hill who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. You do not need to instruct a Strawberry Hill conveyancing firm to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

Despite our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in seeking a lease extension in Strawberry Hill. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Where there is a missing freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the LVT to judgment on the price.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Strawberry Hill property is Ground Floor Flat 91 Bath Road in May 2009. in a case where the freeholder could not be traced, the Brentford County Court ordered that the Lease be surrendered in return for the grant of a new lease of the Premises at a premium determined by the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal. The tribunal concluded that the price payable by the Applicant for the new lease of the premises be £15,900 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired term was 60.45 years.
