We are a couple about to sign contracts for a semi detached house in Whitworth. We have hit a problem. The mortgage offer with Barclays Direct runs out on 9/6/2021 but the sellers are insisting on a completion date of 11/6/2021. Can one prolong the loan expiry date?

The person best placed to address this question is your lawyer who will calculate whether he or she is should be discussing with the lender, vendor’s lawyers, selling agents or indeed all three based on the circumstances your transaction to date.

About to place an offer on a leasehold property in Whitworth. The selling agents assure me that it is the norm for flats in Whitworth to have less than 75 years left on the lease. I am taking out a loan with Platform. Will the property be mortgageable given that the lease has 69 years unexpired.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are obtaining a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Platform have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 9/4/2021 the requirements read as follows :

70 years unexpired at application, 30 years at the end of the mortgage term, except where the mortgage application is pursuant to Platform's participation in the Government's Help to Buy Shared Equity scheme, in which case (a) the unexpired lease term must not be less than 250 years for new-build houses and not less than 125 years for new-build flats and (b) ground rent must be reasonable at all times and any escalation must be linked to RPI (Retail Price Index) or a similar index.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Whitworth is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Whitworth are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Whitworth you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Whitworth may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, yet the selling agent has warned us that the seller will only go ahead if we use their recommended conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Whitworth

We suspect that the seller is not behind this requirement. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to appoint your own,trusted Whitworth conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Whitworth. Before I get started I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Whitworth - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I invested in buying a 1st floor flat in Whitworth, conveyancing having been completed in 2004. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Similar properties in Whitworth with a long lease are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2095

With 74 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
