I have justdiscovered that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Llanfairfechan for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to check 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 Llanfairfechan conveyancing specialists.
How does conveyancing in Llanfairfechan differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Llanfairfechan come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in Llanfairfechan typically purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Llanfairfechan or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Llanfairfechan I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Llanfairfechan in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
