Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bradmore

My wife and I have a terraced Victorian house in Bradmore. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Britannia. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Bradmore and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Bradmore. 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.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Bradmore

    Please supply a car parking plan. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. 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.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Bradmore I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bradmore for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I'm converting the mortgage on my current home to a buy to let loan with Bank of Scotland and intend to use the remaining equity towards further property. The area we are talking about is Bradmore. Will your solicitors be able to act for the two mortgage companies and link together the conveyances?

Make use of our comparison tool on this site to ensure that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panels. Assuming that they are your solicitor should be able to tie up the two conveyancing matters but you should talk with you conveyancer and make clear your expectations and requirements.

Developers have put forward a conveyancer and I've received a quote from them. It's nearly £300 cheaper than my preferred Bradmore solicitor. What's the catch?

Developers frequently have panels of solicitors who expedite matters and who know the seller’s contract and solicitor. As many developers offer an inducement to use a preferred property lawyer for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a builder won't recommend a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they require an exchange within a tight deadline. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the suggested lawyer is that they may prove reluctant to 'push' your interests at the risk of upsetting the housebuilder. If you worry that this may be the situation you should stick with your local Bradmore solicitor.
