    Notice of Transfer and charge for leasehold property

    Hi I was wondering whether someone could assist me in answering the following. I have been gifted a flat and am going to the land registry office to transfer it next week. I know I have to transfer the ownership of the lease with the landlord but just wanted to know whether I have to use a solicitor for this or whether I can type my own. I have all the paperwork from when my son purchased the property and have a copy of the notice that was completed which I could use as a rough guide. Is it a legal requirement to use a conveyancer for this or has anyone been in a similar situation. Thank you in advance

    You can in theory deal with both the freeholder and LR yourself - whether you have the skills to so do we couldn't comment.

      hi

      I’m looking at (quite far down the line actually!) buying the 157 yr leasehold to a grade 2 flat. It has a number of differences from its drawings on the lease (new doorway in a wall and partial wall removals. It has retrospective planning permissions for the most recent changes and...

      Maybe this could be a way to get some money off the price...

      Let's say the freeholder will ask £10k for retrospective consent, if he gets to hear about the alterations. Seller might knock £5k off the price to ensure that he doesn't.

      Our 12 flats are leasehold with each owning an equal share of freehold and an allocated car park space. Over the years, some owners have 'swapped' parking spaces (by private arrangement rather than officially). In addition, the original plans on the leases show an arrangement of spaces that is physically...

      The original freeholder sold off the flats but decided to keep some of the parking area (which he subsequently sold on). So the leases have plans wherein he has overdrawn parking spaces onto the original architect drawings but condensing 4 spaces into 5. This was done in the mid-80s. The residents at...

      How old is the lease though?

      I think the old BMC minis were only about 4ft 7" wide.

      Are you buying with a mortgage (or a plan to remortgage once renovations are done)?

      Get specialist advice. This has the potential to get costly, however by the sounds of it you have grounds to go back to the freeholder and explain its their mistake.

      Are you sure all properties are entitled to a space? Or are some cheaper flats just trying it on to get a free space or...

      Hi,
      I was wondering whether I could get some advice on the following subject please?

      I bought a leasehold flat eight years ago. At the time I just got a basic valuation done and no survey. When I purchased the flat, it had a set of french doors already built in the main bedroom....

      Hi all

      I wonder if anyone can help. Point below relevant to this thread.
      If a landlord accepts service charges (but not ground rent) following becoming aware of a breach have they waived their right to forfeiture?
      Best wishes

      I think Playnotwork has paid a fee to buy the freehold title from the Managing agent. ) post no.8 )

      I hope he has some documentation to show he has paid and there is still formality of transferring the freehold title to PNW or to his buyer .

      The freehold title is registered...
