Our expertise with residential property matters in Cranbrook
Buying and selling residential property
When buying or selling your home, there are a number of problems that can occur, so our team will work closely with you to make sure that any potential pitfalls are planned for accordingly and mitigated.
One of the biggest issues that potential buyers or sellers can face is delays, which can eventually end up endangering an entire sale. Our residential conveyancing solicitors in Cranbrook will guide you through the entire process and deal with any paperwork in a timely fashion. We will also make sure you stay up to speed throughout from the moment you instruct us, so you don’t have to worry about any unfortunate surprises.
Furthermore, our conveyancing solicitors are ready and willing to assist with both freehold and leasehold property transactions. Leasehold transactions tend to be more complex than freehold property transactions, and we will be beside you to advise you on the best practice when it comes to this.
Our conveyancing solicitors in Cranbrook will be happy to provide guidance on the best available choices concerning the purchase and sale of leasehold properties.
Mortgages and remortgages
Our conveyancing solicitors are in a strong position to help our clients, whether you would prefer to go with a local building society or a larger lender. This is due to us being on the panel for most major UK lenders.
When it comes to dealing with mortgages, our team are able to offer the best advice for your particular situation due to our large breadth of knowledge – we will make sure to deal with any paperwork or documentation needed in the most efficient way.
If you own a leasehold property, the terms of your ownership will be dictated by the length of the lease on the property. If the lease period is shorter, the property’s worth decreases, making it more challenging to sell in the future.
It’s important to note that when a lease on a property has 80 years or less remaining on it, it is often very difficult to remortgage or sell. When situations like this arise, it will likely be required to negotiate a lease extension with the freeholder. It is possible to do this voluntarily via an agreement, but can also be done through a statutory lease extension, completed via the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993.
Our conveyancing solicitors will advise you on the best option for your situation and will assist you during the whole process.
As a leasehold property owner, you may be able to purchase the freehold alongside any other tenants. This is so long as you are a ‘qualifying tenant’ and you meet specific requirements.
There are many positives to purchasing a freehold, however, the leasehold enfranchisement process can be difficult and intricate. In this situation, we always recommend seeking expert legal counsel.
At Kingsfords, our conveyancing solicitors in Cranbrook have years of experience dealing with the enfranchisement process and will discuss with you in detail whether it is a feasible process for you.
Disputes between landlords and tenants are commonplace, so to help keep things peaceful between the two parties, tenancy agreements can be drawn up.
These agreements can be intricate and complex, so to make sure that an agreement is airtight, we strongly suggest using the expertise of our conveyancing solicitors.
Our property solicitors in Cranbrook will be able to review the contracts and make any amendments as well as supporting you should there be a breach of contract.
