My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Acton. Conveyancing is required. What is next?

Given that you have now for in every practical sense signed on the dotted line you will need to choose a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of urgency as you now have a pending a drop dead date to complete the property. Every auction property will ordinarily have a corresponding auction pack. This should include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the auction pack may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation relating to a leasehold property. You need to give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor ASAP. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

I happen to be the sole recipient of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Acton. The Acton property was put into my name in September. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in September. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Most mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this clause primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

Are all Acton Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel?

Some major banks and building societies now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their panels.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Acton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Acton. We have lived in Acton for six years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of 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)

I'm buying my first flat in Acton benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about this extras as it could adversely affect my loan with Lloyds TSB Bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I own a a ground floor purpose built flat in Acton. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the sum due for the purchase of the freehold?

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Acton residence is 4 Woodhurst Road in July 2013. The Tribunals valuation for the premium to be paid in respect of the collective enfranchisement was £51,050. This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 63.75 years.

Are there common deficiencies that you see in leases for Acton properties?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Acton. All leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are missing. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Insurance obligations

You could encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Halifax, Norwich and Peterborough Building Society, and Barclays Direct all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the buyer to pull out.
