Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Walton

We selected a local firm for my conveyancing in Walton recently. After carefully reading the fine print it is apparent thatwe are on the hook for charges even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I go with them or select a web based lawyer offering no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Walton?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to cover those conveyances that abort. Please beware that these promotions generally do not protect you from expenses e.g. Walton conveyancing search fees.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a search tool with a view to list solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel for instance in Walton?

We would not expect to be advised of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a search facility.

What can a local search tell me regarding the property we're purchasing in Walton?

Walton conveyancing often starts with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations for example Searches UK The local search is essential in every Walton conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any nasty once you have moved into your property. The search should reveal information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen subject sections.

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

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Walton. 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…’

How does conveyancing in Walton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Walton approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because developers in Walton usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Walton or who has acted in the same development.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Walton. Conveyancing and Godiva Mortgages Ltd mortgage are in place. 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 1998. The conveyancing solicitor in Walton who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

First contact HMLR to be sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion.

Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

Following years of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Walton. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
