I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Dymock I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Dymock suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
Am I right to be concerned that estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Dymock conveyancing company?
As is the case with many professional services, often input from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are lots of players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and banks may put forward solicitors to appoint. On occasion these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there may be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the right to appoint your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that some mortgage providers have an approved list of law firms you have to use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.
Am I best advised to choose a Dymock conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can deal with the legal formalities but they are based 300miles away.
The benefit of a local Dymock conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust used your friend and they were happy that should surpass using an unfamiliar Dymock conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.
