Our expertise with residential property matters in Hythe

Buying and selling residential property

Many issues can arise when you’re buying or selling a home, so our conveyancing solicitors will work diligently to make sure every aspect of the transaction has been scrutinised and accounted for, as well as preparing in advance for any potential problems.

Delays can be one of the most prominent issues faced during a property transaction. Whilst our team will do their utmost to prevent any significant delays by effectively dealing with any documentation and box-ticking needed, unfortunately they are sometimes inevitable. Should this happen, our team will keep you completely up to date, so you are never in the dark about any of your transactions.

Our conveyancing lawyers also have a lot of experience in both freehold and leasehold property transactions. We’re fully aware that leasehold transactions are often far more complex than the former and are ready to assist you with the process.

Our conveyancing solicitors in Hythe will be sure you make you aware of the best option for your situation in terms of purchasing or selling a leasehold property.

Mortgages and remortgages

As we are on the panel for the majority of major UK lenders, meaning we can assist you no matter if you choose to work with a local building society or a larger firm.

We will also advise you on the best possible option for you in terms of mortgages or remortgaging. Our team has extensive experience in this area and will do our best to secure you the best deal.

Lease extensions

In the case that you own a leasehold property, the duration of the lease on the property will determine the terms of your ownership. A shorter lease period implies a decrease in the property’s value, which will make it more difficult 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, done via the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993.

Of course, conveyancing solicitors will work with you to figure out the best option and will guide you through the process.

Leasehold enfranchisement

If they are a ‘qualifying tenant’ a leasehold property owner can purchase a freehold property alongside other available tenants.

There are many advantages to this, but the leasehold enfranchisement process can be incredibly complex and cumbersome. For these situations, we suggest seeking expert legal advice from one of our conveyancing solicitors.

Our team are highly experienced with the enfranchisement process and know exactly what to look out for. This means that we can quickly and efficiently establish whether this is a viable route for you to go down.

Tenancy Agreements

Our team have a lot of experience dealing with disputes between landlords and tenants and regularly draw up tenancy agreements that keep everyone’s interests safe.

Tenancy agreements like these can be complicated, so we highly recommend seeking the assistance of one of our conveyancing solicitors in Hythe to make sure the contract is foolproof.

Our team will also review the contracts in detail and can provide advice and legal representation in case of a breach of contract.

Additional residential property matters

Our Hythe conveyancing lawyers are also happy to help with several other legal intricacies, such as:

  • Adverse possession claims
  • Auction purchases
  • Land purchases
  • Easements
  • Grazing agreements
  • Mobile home purchases
