Recently the press has been awash with details of cases where purchasers of new leasehold houses (as opposed to flats) have found themselves with properties which have become burdens not assets.
Some of the issues that are causing concern include:-
While the issues raised above are not necessarily new to owners of leasehold flats they are new in the context of building and selling leasehold houses.
It would appear that the contents of the leases purchasers have signed have caught both the conveyancing and mortgage industries unaware. Some lenders are now not willing to provide mortgages on properties which have onerous conditions in leases.
So how did thousands of purchasers end up owning properties with onerous leases?
In some cases it is believed that the terms of the lease and what purchasers were buying were not adequately explained to purchasers by their conveyancers, if at all..
This FREE webinar will seek to explain how conveyancing should be undertaken, analyse some of the issues which owners of leasehold houses may now be facing with and how they might seek redress.
Amongst other things, we will consider;
|Fiona Hewitt||Tom Ansell||Roger Hardwick||Ben Stimmler|
|Head of Dispute Resolution Department|
Head of Residential Conveyancing Department
|Residential Leasehold Department|
42 Bedford Row Chambers.
