Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Heywood

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Heywood is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Heywood are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Heywood you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Heywood may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I today found out that one of the partners of the solicitors handling the purchase conveyancing in Heywood is related to the owners that we are purchasing from. Is this permitted?

As long as there is no conflict of interest this is allowable. Where you are needing a mortgage then the lender may have a say as many mortgage companies have specific instructions on this. For example for Chelsea Building Society as of 7/1/2021, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Yes, provided that:
* there is no conflict of interest and none arises during the transaction
* the firm is a partnership
* the conveyancer acting is not the borrower or a member of the borrower's immediate family.
