Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Culcheth 10 years ago no longer exist. Will I be able to sell the house?
Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be evidenced by HMLR under a Title Number. It is easy to carry out a search at the Land Registry, locate your property and get current copies of the property title for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for £20 inclusive of VAT.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Culcheth is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Culcheth are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Culcheth you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Culcheth may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Culcheth. I've land on a web site which seems to have the perfect answer If there is a chance to get all the legals done via email that would be preferable. Do I need to be concerned? What should out be looking out for?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
I own a leasehold flat in Culcheth. Conveyancing was finished in 2011. I have been told that I should not let the lease length fall too short. Is this right?
Culcheth domestic long term leases are for a set term - often ninety nine years when they commenced. However a significant appartments in Culcheth were constructed or converted in the 60’s and so these leases now have less than 80 years unexpired. This may sound like a long time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage institutions tend to require leases to have at least seventy five years remaining to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are nearing 75 years. To optimize the marketability of your property you should be thinking about whether to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Furthermore strong financial reasons to taking action before the lease reaches even 80 years as when the lease is less than eighty years the amount to be paid to extend starts to escalate.
