My aunt passed away six months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Yardley. The house had a relatively small loan remaining of approximately £8000. I want to have the title changed into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Santander, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?
If you plan to re-mortgage then Santander will require that you use a conveyancer on the Santander conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Santander conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Santander mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Yardley I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Yardley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business offices in Yardley and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to provides protection to business lessees, granting the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a renewal tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act to your advantage and handle your commercial conveyancing in Yardley
Our conveyancing in Yardley is completing next Friday, yet the sellers I am purchasing from wants to vacate on the Saturday midday. Can I accept such a idea?
It is not possible to complete on a Saturday because the bank systems are not operational.
