I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Ellesmere Port and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Ellesmere Port conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Ellesmere Port. Having lived in Ellesmere Port for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You must 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 Georgian house in Ellesmere Port. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Platform Home Loans Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to 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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Ellesmere Port and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
I am purchasing my first flat in Ellesmere Port benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my solicitor about the extras as it would put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Ellesmere Port I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Ellesmere Port suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
