Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Temple Fortune

    Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. 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. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

My aim is to acquire a ground floor apartment in Temple Fortune. Conveyancing lawyer has been awaiting, from the owner, building insurance schedule. I was told today I was advised that the owner needs to send the insurance schedule for the flat above as well. Why would my solicitor need to see the insurance for the other flat? Is it really necessary? We have been in hold for the previous month…

It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in Temple Fortune to find Conveyancing in Temple Fortune in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the tenant's to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the complete premises - which is clearly preferable. Do clarify with your property lawyer but it would appear that your property lawyer is seeking to verify that the complete building is insured. Insuring your apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the other flat cannot be reconstructed for lack of insurance cover.
