Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Holsworthy

My friend advised me that where I am buying in Holsworthy I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Holsworthy conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing important information about Holsworthy around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Holsworthy Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Holsworthy Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Holsworthy.

Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Holsworthy , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Holsworthy conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my purchase is registered.

As far as conveyancing in Holsworthy registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any third persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration occurs after the buyer has moved in to the property so registration formalities is not always an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

How does conveyancing in Holsworthy differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Holsworthy approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Holsworthy tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Holsworthy or who has acted in the same development.

I am employed by a busy estate agency in Holsworthy where we have experienced a few leasehold sales jeopardised as a result of short leases. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Holsworthy conveyancing firms. Could you confirm whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

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 am the registered owner of a garden flat in Holsworthy, conveyancing having been completed in 1999. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Holsworthy with an extended lease are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2076

With just 54 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £32,300 and £37,400 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.

I note that you have a post code search directory listing law firms on the bank conveyancing panel. Do Holsworthy conveyancing firms pay you a commission if I appoint them for my conveyancing?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the lender conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to the any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Holsworthy.
