We are due to complete on the purchase of a house in Hailsham but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the vendor of £2k by way of a deduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process yet UBS will not agree to this. Why were they notified?
The lawyer that is on a UBS approved list is obliged to advise UBS of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to notify the price change to UBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, UBS and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Hailsham.
I appreciate that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I need this when buying a residence in Hailsham? or Apparently there is an ancient law that could mean that owners of property living in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for repairs to the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this relevant for conveyancing in Hailsham?
Unless a prior acquisition of the property took place post 12 October 2013 you can expect conveyancing practitioners carrying out conveyancing in Hailsham to remain recommending a chancel search and or chancel repair liability policy.
The deeds to our house are lost. The conveyancers who handled the conveyancing in Hailsham 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your solicitor will know precisely where to find all the appropriate documentation so you can purchase or sell your house without any difficulty. Where copies are not available, your conveyancer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on the property.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Hailsham I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Hailsham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they 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 consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
