I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Four Oaks. I have a mortgage agreed with RBS. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with RBS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the RBS conveyancing panel.
It is not clear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Four Oaks building society branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Four Oaks conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
The lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two requirements for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Four Oaks I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Four Oaks suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
