My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent has warned us that the vendor will only move forward if we use the agent's recommended lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Hilton
We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Hilton conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will give their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by HQ.
I have recently realised that I have 72 years left on my lease in Hilton. I am keen to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What are my options?
If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have made all reasonable attempts to track down the lessor. For most situations a specialist would be helpful to carry out a search and to produce a report to be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor in relation to devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Hilton.
