As someone clueless as to the Wennington conveyancing process what’s your top tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Wennington

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Wennington and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes your bank. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Wennington is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the transaction whose interest is to protect your best interests and to protect you.

There is a worrying creep in the "blame" culture- someone must be blamed for the process taking so long. You must always trust your solicitor above the other players when it comes to the legal assignment of property.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Wennington. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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 is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Wennington

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. 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?

I opted to have a survey done on a property in Wennington before appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may not grant a loan on this type of premises.

Last October I purchased a leasehold house in Wennington. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

Despite our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in trying to purchase the freehold in Wennington. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Wennington conveyancing firm who can help.

This case affected 13 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 76 years.
