We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Brynford and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a national conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Brynford. Having lived in Brynford for 5 years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

No doubt the best way to select a conveyancing lawyer is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually experience in using the solicitor that you are contemplating using.
I am looking at a two apartments in Brynford which have in the region of forty five years unexpired on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
There are no two ways about it. A leasehold flat in Brynford is a deteriorating asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it adversely affects the marketability of the property. The majority of buyers and mortgage companies, leases with less than 75 years become less and less marketable. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of premises with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Brynford conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.
