I am buying a new build apartment in Hertfordshire. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hertfordshire

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

Hoping to buy a property located in Hertfordshire and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Hertfordshire. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Hertfordshire area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Hertfordshire. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the agent has warned us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's recommended conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Hertfordshire

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive. Contact the owners directly and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to use your own,trusted Hertfordshire conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by HQ.

If all goes to plan we aim to complete our sale of a £325,000 apartment in Hertfordshire on Monday in a week. The freeholder has quoted £396 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a flat conveyance in Hertfordshire?

For the majority of leasehold sales in Hertfordshire conveyancing will involve, questions about the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Addressing conveyancing due diligence questions Where consent is required before sale in Hertfordshire Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Hertfordshire leasehold property is £350. For Hertfordshire conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to supply answers.

I inherited a ground floor flat in Hertfordshire, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2000. How much will my lease extension cost? Comparable properties in Hertfordshire with an extended lease are worth £181,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2068

With only 50 years unexpired the likely cost is going to span between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
