Completed the sale of my flat in Disley last August but our buyer keeps calling every few hours to moan that her lawyer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale formalities now that I have sold?
After completion of your house sale your solicitor is obliged to send the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Where relevant, your solicitor should also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been discharged to the buyers solicitors. There are no post completion formalities specific conveyancing in Disley.
I have todaydiscovered that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Disley for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest way to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Disley conveyancing specialists.

I am attracted to a couple of apartments in Disley both have about 50 years remaining on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
There is no doubt about it. A leasehold apartment in Disley is a deteriorating asset as a result of the reducing lease term. The closer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it adversely affects the marketability of the property. For most purchasers and lenders, leases with less than 75 years become less and less attractive. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of premises with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Disley conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.
