We are downsizing from our home in Abbey Wood and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Abbey Wood. We have lived in Abbey Wood for three years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home can not be found. The lawyers who conducted the conveyancing in Abbey Wood 10 years ago no longer exist. Will I be able to sell the house?

I am employed by a reputable estate agent office in Abbey Wood where we see a few flat sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Abbey Wood conveyancing solicitors. Could you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

Following years of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Abbey Wood. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Abbey Wood conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Abbey Wood property is Various @ Colombus Square in January 2012. the Tribunal calculated the premiums to be paid for new leases for each of the flats in Mariners Walk to be £3822 and the premium to be paid for the new lease of 2 Knights Court to be £4439. This case was in relation to 13 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 76 years.
