Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mancot

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Mancot? What am I being asked for?

To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Mancot conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing matters. This is usually satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account evidencing where you live.

In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are required to validate not simply the ID of conveyancing clients but also the source of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will result in your solicitor ending their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your property lawyers will have an obligation to make a disclosure to the relevant authorities should they believe that any amounts received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of maisonettes in Mancot both have approximately forty five years remaining on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

A lease is a right to use the premises for a period of time. As the lease shortens the value of the lease decreases and it becomes more expensive to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.

I own a garden flat in Mancot, conveyancing formalities finalised 10 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Mancot with an extended lease are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2087

With 68 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
