  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Tetbury can be avoided where you appoint lawyers the minute your agents start advertising the property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ lawyers.
  • If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should make sure that you are holding the original share document. Organising a replacement share certificate can be a time consuming process and delays many a Tetbury conveyancing transaction. If a reissued share certificate is required, do contact the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible. Many freeholders or Management Companies in Tetbury charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Tetbury. Some Tetbury leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this is the case, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are able to meet the yearly 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 solicitors.

I am the registered owner of a leasehold flat in Tetbury, conveyancing having been completed in 2012. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding flats in Tetbury with an extended lease are worth £222,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2093

With just 71 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £9,500 and £11,000 plus legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.

I am short of a 10% deposit on my house purchase in Tetbury , but I am keen go ahead. What can I do?

One option is to try and agree a lesser deposit. Many property owners will agree to a smaller deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.

You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
