Shared Ownership Conveyancing

Thinking about buying or selling a shared ownership property in Bedford? The process can involve complexities, but Clarity Legal Services is here to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience. Our team boasts extensive experience in shared ownership conveyancing for Bedford, guiding you expertly through each step.

Understanding Shared Ownership Conveyancing

Shared ownership is a government scheme that aids people in getting on the property ladder. It allows you to purchase a share (typically 25% to 75%) of a property and pay rent on the remaining portion owned by a housing association. Shared ownership conveyancing refers to the legal aspects involved in transferring ownership of your share. Here are the two main scenarios:

Buying a Shared Ownership Property

This involves the initial purchase of your share from a housing association or previous owner. Shared ownership conveyancing in this situation ensures the legal transfer of ownership for your share gets registered with the Land Registry. Clarity Legal’s Bedford team will handle everything legal, including:

 

  • Reviewing the Shared Ownership Lease: We’ll meticulously examine the lease agreement, explaining the key terms and conditions that govern your rights and responsibilities as a shared owner. This includes details like rent payments, maintenance obligations, selling your share, and potential limitations on property modifications.

  • Liaising with the Housing Association: We’ll communicate effectively with the housing association on your behalf to ensure a smooth and timely transaction. This might involve obtaining various documents, approvals, or confirmations related to the purchase.

  • Transferring Ownership: We’ll handle the legal transfer of your shared ownership interest, ensuring all paperwork is accurate and submitted to the Land Registry for official registration.

Selling a Shared Ownership Property

If you decide to sell, conveyancing ensures a smooth legal handover to the new buyer. Clarity Legal will:

 

  • Prepare the legal documents for the sale, ensuring they comply with the terms of the lease agreement.

  • Liaise with the housing association to obtain their approval for the sale and ensure any outstanding fees or charges are settled.

  • Manage the transfer of your ownership share to the new buyer and ensure the Land Registry reflects the updated ownership information.
