My wife and I own a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Isle Of Wight. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Isle Of Wight and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Isle Of Wight with a loan from Clydesdale. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent advised me not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement flat in Isle Of Wight. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just had a half-yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is pay the invoice as you normally would because all rents and service invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
I invested in buying a 1st floor flat in Isle Of Wight, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2000. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Isle Of Wight with a long lease are worth £222,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2090
With only 71 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
