Our Malden Rushett solicitor has uncovered an inconsistency between the information in the home valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer informs me that he must check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s course or action correct?

Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

At what point will exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Malden Rushett and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?

Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Malden Rushett you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we work with provide a national conveyancing service and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Malden Rushett)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

What is the optimum way to investigate if the solicitor carrying out my conveyancing in Malden Rushett is on the bank’sapproved panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Accord Mortgages Ltd thus paying £192.00 in supplemental legal invoice.

I am looking at a couple of maisonettes in Malden Rushett which have in the region of fifty years unexpired on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

There is no doubt about it. A leasehold apartment in Malden Rushett is a wasting asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it adversely affects the salability of the premises. The majority of buyers and lenders, leases with under 75 years become less and less marketable. On a more upbeat 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 a property 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 Malden Rushett conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend 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 the agreed 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.
