Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that may impact a commercial site in Cambridge?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Cambridge will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Cambridge. The report provides definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Cambridge.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Cambridge it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Cambridge. Before diving in I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Cambridge - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I own a 1 bedroom flat in Cambridge, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Cambridge with over 90 years remaining are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2082

With just 64 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £14,300 and £16,400 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.

There are plenty of houses in Cambridge on private lanes. I am buying such a property. What are the advantages and disadvantages of buying a residence on a private road?

Cambridge conveyancing lawyers are well versed in transacting houseson unadopted roads. Your conveyancing practitioner will review the Land Registry data to find any rights or liabilities. It is possible that there is a residents association that proprietors pay into to maintain the road. Where one exists, the road will likely be maintained and appear better than publicly maintained.
