Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Morganstown

The owners of the home we are purchasing hired a conveyancing firm in Morganstown who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a down payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?

There are two main concerns with entering into any lock out contract (also termed a shut-out contract) is that it can distract from moving forward with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it may turn out to be a hindrance. It is not promoted by Morganstown conveyancing lawyers as a result. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is extremely unlikely to secure injunctive relief to prevent the owner disposing of the property to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the reimbursement of abortive charges and, in limited circumstances, the additional payment of penalties.

three months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Morganstown completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Morganstown differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Morganstown contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Morganstown typically purchase the land, 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 Morganstown or who has acted in the same development.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Morganstown. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Morganstown - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

    Is there a share of the freehold? What prohibitions exist in the Morganstown Lease? Where a Morganstown lease has less than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the salability of the property. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are content with residual term of the lease. A short lease means that you will almost definitely need a lease extension sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this will be. For most Morganstownlease extensions you would need to own the premises for 24 months before you are eligible to extend the lease.
