I have recentlybeen informed that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Moseley for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Moseley conveyancing specialists.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Moseley I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Moseley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
