I have todaybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Burwash for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to check if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Burwash conveyancing specialists.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one close by in Burwash I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Burwash for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
In sourcing the internet for the words on line conveyancing in Burwash it reveals many conveyancerslocally. How do I determine which is the suitable property lawyer for purchase transaction?

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Burwash. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just had a quarterly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as you normally would because all ground rent and maintenance payments should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
