Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Waterlooville. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Waterlooville

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

Taking into account that I will soon spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on 3 bedroom house in Waterlooville I would like to talk to a solicitor concerning thehouse move in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer who will be conducting your property ownership legalities in Waterlooville.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a case number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are provided with for residential conveyancing in Waterlooville should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent has warned us that the seller will only move forward if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Waterlooville

It is improbable the owners are driving this. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is counter productive. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to instruct your own,trusted Waterlooville conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures pre-set by HQ.

Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Waterlooville from the perspective of saving time on the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Waterlooville can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ representatives.
  • Some Waterlooville leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references. Any 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 lawyers. If there is a history of any disputes with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are resolved prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be warry about purchasing a flat where there is a current dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to present the dispute as historic as opposed to unsettled. Many landlords or Management Companies in Waterlooville charge for providing management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should find out the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack sought on or before finding a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most frequent cause of frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Waterlooville.

I acquired a 1st floor flat in Waterlooville, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent properties in Waterlooville with a long lease are worth £181,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2072

With only 51 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £30,400 and £35,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
