In the event thatI was to purchase a straightforward homein Amersham mortgage fee and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Amersham?
Any savings you would achieve would be isolated to the disbursement for searches. A conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the vendors conveyancing practitioner, stamp duty return, register the title etc. A marginal saving might be made by not having to register a mortgage but it won't be significant.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Amersham?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Amersham. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Amersham I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Amersham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

I’m about to sell my garden flat in Amersham. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently received a half-yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
It best that you pay the service charge as normal given that all rents and service charges will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
