I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in West Barnes I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in West Barnes for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
I have been recommended by a number of estate agents in West Barnes to select a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers ahead of a competitor’s?
We don’t make any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
My husband and I have today had a bid accepted on our 1st home in West Barnes, and need to get solicitors instructed. We have used the different rating based websites and the quotes are from all across the the UK. Is it important to have a West Barnes conveyancing practitioner local to your potential new home? I am content to do everything electronically, but I am thinking at some stage we will be required to physically go into the conveyancer's office to sign papers?
The conveyancer does not need to be in West Barnes, but choosing local means that you have the option to visit their offices if required, for instance, if a signature is needed urgently. Also, a West Barnes solicitor have established relationships with local agents and (if the vendor has chosen a local property lawyer) with them, which should help smooth the process.
