Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Long Eaton

I am buying a property without a mortgage in Long Eaton. I have been residing for the previous 20 years in Long Eaton. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the area and road intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a home loan, then the vast majority of the Long Eaton conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but she is duty bound to take that path of guidance. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to dispose of the house at a future date, it could be of importance to your future purchaser what the searches disclose. There are plenty of instances where properties with no practical issues can still show up negative search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Long Eaton will provide you some helpful advice here.

I am buying a new build house in Long Eaton with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it could put at risk my loan with Accord Mortgages Ltd. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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%.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of flats in Long Eaton which have about forty five years unexpired on the leases. Will this present a problem?

There is no doubt about it. A leasehold apartment in Long Eaton is a wasting asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it reduces the salability of the premises. For most buyers and mortgage companies, leases with less than 75 years become less and less marketable. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the property for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of premises with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Long Eaton conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. A more straightforward and quicker method of extending would be to contact your landlord directly and sound him out on the prospect of extending the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

I bought a ground floor flat in Long Eaton, conveyancing having been completed 6 years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Long Eaton with an extended lease are worth £181,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2070

With 50 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
