Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Warrington

My solicitor has uncovered a defect with the lease for the flat we are buying in Warrington. The other side have suggested defective title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our lawyer says that he must be satisfied that the bank is happy with this solution. Are we the client or is the bank?

The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the risk of a conflict of interest, you and the bank are the client. Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the mortgage company can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

Back In 2004, I bought a leasehold house in Warrington. Conveyancing and Godiva Mortgages Ltd mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1991. The conveyancing practitioner in Warrington who previously acted has long since retired. What should I do?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to instruct a Warrington conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I inherited a ground floor flat in Warrington, conveyancing was carried out in 2010. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding flats in Warrington with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2086

With 64 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £14,300 and £16,400 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
