Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aston

It is 10 years ago since I acquired my home in Aston. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title documents. Is this a problem?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Aston involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

About to purchase a new build apartment in Aston. Conveyancing is daunting 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 are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Aston

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.

Taking into account that I will soon spend over three hundred thousand on a two bedroom apartment in Aston I would like to talk to a lawyer about myhome move prior to appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Absolutely - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer due to be doing your conveyancing in Aston.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique person, not a case number. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Aston should be the figure that you end up paying.

What advice can you give us when it comes to choosing a Aston conveyancing firm to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

If you are instructing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Aston conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We recommend that you speak with several firms including non Aston conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be of use:

    What are the costs for lease extension work? If the firm is not ALEP accredited then what is the reason?

I own a garden flat in Aston, conveyancing was carried out in 2010. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding flats in Aston with a long lease are worth £195,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2087

With only 63 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £16,200 and £18,600 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

Are the Aston conveyancing lawyers identified as being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by the bank?

Aston firms and firms carrying out conveyancing in Aston themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the lender conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from the lender directly.
