Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Walkden

I decided to go with a high street lawyer for my conveyancing in Walkden last week. Going through the Ts and Cs I notewe are on the hook for fees even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and use an on-line firm promising no move no charge conveyancing in Walkden?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will generally be higher to counteract those conveyances that abort. Please beware that these schemes generally do not protect you from expenses e.g. Walkden conveyancing search costs.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Walkden?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Walkden. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Walkden I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Walkden for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

Last February I purchased a leasehold house in Walkden. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
