I am purchasing a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Eccleshall who is on the Barclays Direct approved. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Barclays Direct in certain locations such as Eccleshall. We dont recommend any particular firm.
We are selling our property in Eccleshall and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Eccleshall lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Eccleshall. We have lived in Eccleshall for many years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
Me and my brother own a semi-detached Edwardian property in Eccleshall. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Barnsley Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Eccleshall and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
Hoping to buy a property located in Eccleshall and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Eccleshall. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Eccleshall area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?
Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Eccleshall. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found
I am a negotiator for a busy estate agent office in Eccleshall where we have witnessed a number of leasehold sales put at risk due to short leases. I have received contradictory information from local Eccleshall conveyancing solicitors. Can you clarify whether the seller of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the sale.
An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I am the registered owner of a ground floor flat in Eccleshall, conveyancing having been completed June 2008. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Eccleshall with a long lease are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2094
With only 75 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 plus legals.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
