I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (6 years old) in Hartford. Almost all the properties are already occupied. Is it really necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Hartford?
A big part of the Hartford conveyancing process is the conveyancing searches. There are hundreds search providers who offer Hartford conveyancing searches, as well direct from the local authority. These are usually referred to as personal search organisation and they produce, not surprisingly, personal searches. Nevertheless, all Local Authority Search conveyancing products have one thing in common - they must obtain their information from the local authority.
How up to date is your search tool for Hartford conveyancing solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel? Do RBS send you an updated list?
Hartford conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the RBS conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from RBS directly.
We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the property agent has warned us that the owners will only issue a contract if we use the agent's chosen conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Hartford
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Hartford conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will earn their estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.
I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agent office in Hartford where we see a number of flat sales put at risk due to short leases. I have received inconsistent advice from local Hartford conveyancing solicitors. Please can you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can commence the lease extension process for the buyer?
Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
Alternatively, it may be possible 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 purchaser.
I bought a leasehold flat in Hartford, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2011. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Hartford with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2088
With just 65 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £13,300 and £15,400 plus professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
