Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Braintree

I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (6 years built) in Braintree. The vast majority the appartments have already been occupied. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Braintree?

Where you are obtaining a mortgage, your bank will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Braintree conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. No doubt your conveyancer, will 'advise', perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or it may be necessary to instruct a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Braintree.

five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Braintree took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 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 property 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 flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Braintree I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Braintree for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

I'm remortgaging my current property to a BTL mortgage with The Royal Bank of Scotland and I will use the rest of the raised equity towards a second property. The location we are looking at is Braintree. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of banks and tie in the two deals?

Do use our search tool on this site to ensure that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panels. On the basis that they are the lawyer will be able to tie up the two conveyancing matters but you should have a chat with you conveyancer and specify your desired outcome and needs.
