Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sudbury

I am acquiring a house without a mortgage in Sudbury. I have resided for the previous Seventeen years in Sudbury. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I have knowledge of the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a home loan, then all but one or two of the Sudbury conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are going to sell the house at a future date, it will likely be be of interest to your prospective buyer what the searches contain. On occasion houses with no practical issues can still reveal unpredicted search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Sudbury will provide you some helpful advice in this regard.

I have justbecome aware that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Sudbury for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest way to see if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Sudbury conveyancing specialists.

About to purchase a new build flat in Sudbury. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Sudbury

    Please supply a car parking plan. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

What does commercial conveyancing in Sudbury cover?

Sudbury conveyancing for business premises covers a wide range of advice, supplied by regulated solicitors, relating to business property. For example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the transfer of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of tenancies.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two apartments in Sudbury both have about forty five years left on the leases. should I be concerned?

A lease is a right to use the premises for a period of time. As the lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage companies may be reluctant to lend money on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.

I am the proprietor of a two-bedroom flat in Sudbury. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the premium due for a lease extension?

Where there is a missing freeholder or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the LVT to determine the premium.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Sudbury residence is Ground Floor Flat 79 London Road in September 2012. the Tribunal held that the premium payable for the lease extension should be £7,636 This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired term was 74 years.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden flat in Sudbury.Conveyancing is yet to be initiated however I have recently received a half-yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the service charge as you normally would because all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be allottedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
