Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a lender your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers dealing with homes in Browns Green. There are those who acquire a house in Browns Green, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the premises.

Lawyers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that may be initiated by the buyer or by their lawyers which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Browns Green. The conventional set of information given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out whether the property has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser could bring a claim for damages as a result of such an incorrect reply. The purchaser’s solicitors should also order an enviro search. This will higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be conducted.

What makes a Browns Green lease defective?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Browns Green. All leases are unique and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain clauses are not included. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage A duty to insure the building

You could have a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Accord Mortgages Ltd, Barnsley Building Society, and TSB all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.

I purchased a 2 bed flat in Browns Green, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable properties in Browns Green with an extended lease are worth £227,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2096

You have 72 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information 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 want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
