Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cross Keys

It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Cross Keys completed. I have checked the Land Registry website 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 was recommended by a number of property agents in Cross Keys to select a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to recommend your site rather than a competitor’s?

We refuse to make any financial incentive for directing people to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

My partner has urged me to instruct his conveyancing solicitors in Cross Keys. Should I choose my own conveyancer?

I am intending to let out my leasehold apartment in Cross Keys. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?

Your lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will say if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in Cross Keys do not contain strict prohibition on subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the flat. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a duplicate of the sublease.

    How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their maintenance charge payments? Where a Cross Keys lease has no more than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the marketability of the property. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are willing to go ahead with the loan given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely require a lease extension at some point and you need to have some idea of how much this will be. For most Cross Keyslease extensions you will be be obliged to have owned the premises for 24 months in order to be entitled to extend the lease. It is important to be aware if redecorating or some other significant cost is due in the near future to be shared between the leaseholders and could well materially impact the level of the maintenance fees or necessitate a specific payment.
