Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shefford

In the event thatI were to buy a straightforward homein Shefford mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Shefford?

The sole reduction in fees you would make on is the costs for searches. Your conveyancer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with your vendors lawyer, stamp duty submission, register the property etc. A slight saving might be made by not needing to register a charge however it won't be meaningful.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Shefford. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Shefford

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Shefford I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Shefford suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the agent informed us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we use their chosen solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Shefford

It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Shefford conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by senior management.
