I went with a local firm for our conveyancing in Cornwall last week. After carefully reading the Ts and Cs I seewe are responsible for costs even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and use an on-line conveyancing brokerage promising no move no charge conveyancing in Cornwall?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to counteract the conveyances that abort. Please beware that these arrangements tend not to protect you from expenses for instance Cornwall conveyancing search fees.
I am buying a new build apartment in Cornwall. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Cornwall
The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Cornwall. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Cornwall - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars 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.

It would be a good idea to find out if the the lease includes any adverse restrictions in the lease. For example it is reasonably common in Cornwall leases that pets are not allowed in in a block in Cornwall. If you like the flatin Cornwall yet your cat is not allowed to make the move with you then you will be presented with a hard compromise. In the main the cost for major works are not wrapped into the service charges, albeit that a few managing agents in Cornwall obliged leasehold owners to pay into a reserve fund created for the specific intention of establishing a fund for larger works. You should be aware that where the lease has no more than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the salability of the property. It is worth checking with your lender that they are content with residual term of the lease. A short lease means that you will almost definitely require a lease extension sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. For most Cornwalllease extensions you will be required to have owned the premises for 24 months before you are legally able to exercise a lease extension.
