I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must vacate my let out flat in Cheam by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in a couple of weeks as I wish to avoid having to move into temporary accommodation?
The normal practice is not to provide notice on a rental until exchange of contracts has taken place. If you have not already done so, speak to your conveyancer and ask them to they apply pressure on the sellers side, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will aim to achieve
four months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Cheam completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Cheam I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Cheam suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
