Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Bakewell

    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. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Bakewell is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Bakewell are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Bakewell you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bakewell 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.

Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Bakewell with the intention of saving time on the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Bakewell can be avoided where you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ conveyancers.
  • In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s approval? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Bakewell state that internal structural alterations or laying down wooden flooring require a licence issued by the Landlord acquiescing to such works. Should you dont have the approvals in place you should not communicate with the landlord without checking with your conveyancer before hand. If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should ensure that you are holding the original share document. Organising a duplicate share certificate can be a time consuming process and delays many a Bakewell conveyancing transaction. Where a new share certificate is necessary, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (where relevant) for this sooner rather than later. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved prior to the flat being put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be concerned about purchasing a property where there is a current dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as historic rather than unsettled.

I acquired a 1 bedroom flat in Bakewell, conveyancing having been completed May 2007. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable properties in Bakewell with a long lease are worth £265,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2095

With just 76 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £8,600 and £9,800 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
