I have recentlybecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Hoole for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest method to see if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Hoole conveyancing specialists.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Hoole. 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 conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hoole
If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Please supply a car parking plan. 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. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.

What makes a Hoole lease unacceptable for security purposes?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Hoole. All leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can result in certain sections are missing. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. A duty to insure the building
A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Yorkshire Building Society, Barnsley Building Society, and Bank of Ireland all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to withdraw.
I own a garden flat in Hoole, conveyancing formalities finalised October 2012. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding flats in Hoole with over 90 years remaining are worth £190,000. The ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2083
With 62 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £17,100 and £19,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" 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 in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
