We are intent on selling our home in Wendover and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Wendover. Having lived in Wendover for three years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
I have recentlybeen informed that Stirling Law have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Wendover for a purchase of a leasehold flat 10 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to see if the premises is registered to you, 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 Wendover conveyancing specialists.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Wendover. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Wendover
The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Wendover is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Wendover are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Wendover you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wendover may ascertain 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 residence.
