We have agreed to purchase a house in Maryport. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Yorkshire BS have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Yorkshire BS your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Yorkshire BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease does not satisfy these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Maryport.

Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Maryport , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My Maryport conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my ownership is recorded.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Maryport registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the premises thus an expedited registration is not always primary concern yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

How does conveyancing in Maryport differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Maryport contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Maryport tend to acquire 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Maryport or who has acted in the same development.

Taking into account that I am about to spend 450k on a two bedroom apartment in Maryport I wish to have a conversation with the solicitor about myconveyancing prior to appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?

The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Maryport should be the figure that you end up paying.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two apartments in Maryport which have approximately fifty years remaining on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

There is no doubt about it. A leasehold apartment in Maryport is a deteriorating asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it reduces the marketability of the property. The majority of buyers and lenders, leases with under eighty years become less and less attractive. 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 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 Maryport 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 purchased a ground floor flat in Maryport, conveyancing formalities finalised 10 years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Maryport with an extended lease are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2072

With only 50 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
