I have recentlybecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in St Annes for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in St Annes I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in St Annes for this price, 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 the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

I am purchasing a ground floor maisonette in St Annes. Conveyancing solicitor has been awaiting, from the vendor, building insurance paperwork. I was told today I was informed that the owner must forward the insurance paperwork for the flat above as well. Why would my solicitor need to check the insurance for the other flat? Is it really required? We have been waiting for the previous three weeks…

It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in St Annes to discover Conveyancing in St Annes in a minority of cases reveals that the lease obliges the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the entire property - which is definitely preferable. You should clarify with your lawyer but it would appear that your solicitor is looking to establish that the complete building is insured. Insuring a ground floor apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reinstated as a result of lack of insurance cover.
