Residential Property Conveyancing in Nottingham

So what is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the process of legally transferring the ownership of a property from a seller to a buyer. It usually starts when an offer is accepted and finishes when the keys are handed over.

If you are a first time buyer or moving house, the chances are that a mortgage lender will be involved.  Therefore you will need to have a mortgage offer in place and will need a mortgage valuation. You will also need to take into consideration whether the property is freehold or leasehold. In addition, we recommend that you consider when you are reasonably expecting to complete on the sale or purchase.

Commercial Property Conveyancing

Investing in commercial property for your own business use, or to let to others, is often far more involved than purchasing a residential property. However, the returns for your business or on an investment can be well worth it.

We will support you in acquiring and selling commercial property and leases, both new and assignments to protect your interests.

Other property related issues we can assist with…

Equity Release

Equity release refers to a range of products that let you access the money (equity) tied up in your home if you are over the age of 55. You can take the money you release as a lump sum or, in several smaller amounts or as a combination of both.

This can be a great way of releasing cash without moving from your home.

There are generally two Equity release options:
– Lifetime mortgage
– Home Reversion

However, although equity release can seem like a good option, there are many considerations to take into account. We are able to advise and guide you through these options and explain the potential pitfalls and associated costs involved.

Contact us for more details if you are considering an equity release option.


Right to Buy

Under the Government’s Right To Buy scheme, if you have been a council or housing association tenant for more than three years, you may be eligible to purchase the property you live in at a discount.
Take a look at the following link to find out more and see if you are eligible http://righttobuy.gov.uk

If you are eligible and wish to take the next step on the ladder to home ownership, speak to us to arrange a free consultation on how we can help.


Tenancy Agreements

As a landlord, ensuring you have an ASTA (assured shorthold tenancy agreement) in place is vital. This will ensure you comply with lender requirements and also that you are able to enforce debt recovery and repossession if required. We can also assist you in relation to the statutory tenancy deposit schemes.

Don’t leave yourself open to loopholes which can be exploited by bad tenants. Protect your investment by allowing experts such as ourselves to draw up a fair agreement that will protect your interests.

Our fees are very competitive and we will advise you of the best course of action to take when renting your property.


Freehold Reversions & Lease Extensions

If any property your own is leasehold and on a long lease such as 999 or 125 years, you may wish to consider purchasing the freehold.

» Read more...

Being a ‘leaseholder’ means that although you own the property, you don’t own the land it is built upon.  Therefore you would be liable to an annual ‘ground rent’ payment to the freeholder. Although this may not amount to much per annum, it can be beneficial in the long term. However this isn’t always straight forward!

If you have lived in your leasehold property for more than two years, you may have the right to extend your lease using a Section 42 notice. If successful, this can have the benefit of adding a further 90 years onto your lease if you are in a flat.

How we can help

With our years of experience, we can liaise with the freeholder on your behalf. In addition we will organise all aspects of extending a lease or purchasing a freehold. Contact us for details on how we can help and the costs involved.
