Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Ilford. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Ilford
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. Please supply a car parking plan. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.
I have just appointed agents to market my 2 bed apartment in Ilford. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently received a quarterly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the maintenance contribution as normal given that all rents and maintenance payments will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
Having spent months of dialogue we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Ilford. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
Where there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the LVT to judgment on the price payable.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a Ilford premises is 49 Aldborough Road South in July 2012. The Tribunal decided that the premium payable for the grant of the new lease was £13,925 This case related to 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 61.36 years.
At last I have had an offer on an flat in Ilford accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not yet tied up, and has viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Ilford. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with TSB?
It is standard to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Ilford conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. Regarding the next steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some purchasers will apply for a home loan with TSB and arrange for the survey and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancer to move forward with searches.
