Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Canton

AssumingI was to acquire a simple residential homein Canton mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Canton?

The sole reduction in fees you would achieve is the costs for searches. A conveyancing practitioner still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the vendors property lawyer, stamp duty return, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge but it won't be meaningful.

We wanted to use a property lawyer in Canton for our house move. Our broker has since notified us that our mortgage lenders Lloyds TSB Bank won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Will commercial conveyancing searches disclose impending roadworks that may impact a commercial site in Canton?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Canton will carry out a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers expend in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Canton. The search result sets out definitive data 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 Canton.

The deeds to our property are lost. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Canton 10 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?

Nowadays there are copies made of almost everything, and your lawyer will know precisely where to find all the suitable documentation so you may purchase or sell your property without a hitch. Where copies can’t be located, your conveyancer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities against possible claims on the premises.

I only have 72 years unexpired on my lease in Canton. I am keen to extend my lease but my landlord is absent. What are my options?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you have used your best endeavours to find the landlord. In some cases an enquiry agent may be useful to carry out a search and to produce an expert document which can be used as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor both on devolving into the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Canton.
