My partner and I are at the point of viewing apartments in Kirkdale and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a conveyancer appointed at this point? I intend to finance via a home loan with Skipton.

I have finally had an offer on an apartment in Kirkdale agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Kirkdale. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Aldermore started?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Kirkdale conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your solicitor is on the Aldermore approved list. As to the subsequent phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with Aldermore and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.

Do commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that could affect a commercial land in Kirkdale?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Kirkdale will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Kirkdale.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Kirkdale it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

These searches are not conducted for domestic conveyancing in Kirkdale.

Back In 2005, I bought a leasehold flat in Kirkdale. Conveyancing and Clydesdale mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing practitioner in Kirkdale who previously acted has long since retired. Do I pay?

First contact the Land Registry to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Kirkdale conveyancing firm to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

    How long is the Lease? Please note that where the lease has less than 80 years it will impact the salability of the flat. Check with your bank that they are happy with the length of the lease. A short lease means that you will most likely need a lease extension sooner rather than later and it is worth discovering what this will be. For most Kirkdalelease extensions you would be required to have been the owner of the residence for two years in order to be eligible to extend the lease. For many Kirkdale leaseholds the outlay for major works tend not to be wrapped into the maintenance charges, although a few managing agents in Kirkdale obliged tenants to contribute towards a sinking fund created for the specific intention of building a fund for major repairs or maintenance.
