Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Welling is more expensive?

Welling leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

My wife and I have a renovated Edwardian house in Welling. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Chelsea Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Welling and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.

I am buying my first flat in Welling with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it would affect my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Welling ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend not issue a mortgage on a flying freehold premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Nationwide. If you contact us we can investigate further via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Welling. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

There are plenty of houses in Welling on unadopted roads. I am acquiring such a property. What are the pros and cons of buying a house on a privately owned road?

Welling conveyancing practices will be used to conveyancing homeson private. The conveyancer will review the title to find any rights or responsibilities. It is possible that there is a residents association that owners make annual payments for the upkeep of the road. Where one exists, the road will likely be maintained and look better than council maintained.
