The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Wealdstone. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Wealdstone
Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Please supply a car parking plan.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Wealdstone I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Wealdstone for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
Am I best advised to instruct a Wealdstone conveyancing practitioner based in the area that I am buying? We have a good friend who can deal with the legal formalities but his firm is located a couple of hundredmiles drive away.
The benefit of a local Wealdstone conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to sign documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were impressed that must trump using an unfamiliar Wealdstone conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being round the corner.
I have just started marketing my basement apartment in Wealdstone. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently received a quarterly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you pay the invoice as you normally would as all ground rent and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
Notwithstanding our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in trying to purchase the freehold in Wealdstone. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?
