Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Warfield

My Warfield lawyer has identified a discrepancy when comparing the information in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is obliged to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s stance legitimate?

Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Warfield is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Warfield are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Warfield you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Warfield may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

I am looking at a couple of flats in Warfield which have in the region of 50 years left on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

A lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As the lease gets shorter the saleability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is generally wise to extend the lease term. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.

I invested in buying a basement flat in Warfield, conveyancing having been completed October 1997. How much will my lease extension cost? Comparable properties in Warfield with over 90 years remaining are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2084

With just 60 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
