Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Four Oaks

I opted for a high street firm for my conveyancing in Four Oaks recently. Reviewing the official terms of business it is apparent thatwe are on the hook for charges even if the movedoes not happen. Would I be best advised to choose a web based conveyancing brokerage promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Four Oaks?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will generally be higher to cover the cases that abort. Also remember that these offerings rarely protect you from expenditure for instance Four Oaks conveyancing search charges.

Various online forums that I have visited warn that are the number one cause of hinderance in Four Oaks conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Four Oaks I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Four Oaks in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

Helen (my wife) and I may need to rent out our Four Oaks 1st floor flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Four Oaks conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

Notwithstanding that your last Four Oaks conveyancing lawyer is no longer available you can check your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the property. The rule is that if the lease is silent, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you are obliged to obtain permission via your landlord or other appropriate person before subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining consent. Such consent should not be unreasonably turned down. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord for their consent.

I am the registered owner of a basement flat in Four Oaks, conveyancing was carried out in 2009. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar properties in Four Oaks with a long lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2082

With 58 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £22,800 and £26,400 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
