I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Leeds Building Society are being pedantic. The Chadwell St Mary solicitor who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Leeds Building Society are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Leeds Building Society have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Leeds Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Leeds Building Society may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Chadwell St Mary and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Chadwell St Mary conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Chadwell St Mary. We have lived in Chadwell St Mary for three years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You must check with 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Chadwell St Mary I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Chadwell St Mary for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
Midway through the sale of a leasehold flat in Chadwell St Mary. Conveyancing solicitors are doing their job but we are being charged a fortune from the landlord. To date we have paid £250 for a leasehold management information and then a further £200 plus VAT for answers to questions supplied by the purchaser's conveyancer.
Neither you or your conveyancer will have any say over the level of the fee for this information but the average fee for the information for Chadwell St Mary leasehold property is £380. When it comes to Chadwell St Mary conveyancing transactions it is standard for the seller to pay for these charges. The landlord or their agents are not duty bound to address these questions although many will agree to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices out of proportion to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no legislation that mandates set fees for administrative tasks. Nor is there any set time frame by which they are duty bound to supply answers.
