As someone not used to conveyancing in Writtle what is your top tip you can give me for the legal transfer of property in Writtle
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Writtle or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for friction between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. For instance, the seller, property agent and sometimes the mortgage company. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Writtle should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose interest is to act in your best interests and to protect you.
We are witnessing a distinct increase of a "blame" culture- someone must be blamed for the process taking so long. You your first instinct should be to trust your lawyer ahead of the other parties in the conveyancing process.
It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Writtle concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Writtle I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Writtle for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the 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 may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Writtle. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Writtle - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars 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 2 bed flat in Writtle, conveyancing was carried out 6 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Comparable flats in Writtle with over 90 years remaining are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2081
With just 61 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £19,000 and £22,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
I happen to be an executor of my recently deceased mother’s Will, with a bungalow in Writtle which will be sold. The house has never been registered at HMLR and I'm told that some estate agents will insist that it is done before they'll move forward. What's the procedure for this?
In the circumstances that you have set out it seems prudent to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. The Land Registry’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
