Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aldermanbury

My husband and I are purchasing a 3 bedroom apartment in Aldermanbury with a mortgage. We would like to retain our Aldermanbury conveyancer, but the bank says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or continue with our Aldermanbury conveyancing practitioner as well as pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. We consider that this is inequitable; can we not require that the mortgage company use our Aldermanbury lawyer ?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Aldermanbury conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

We have very brash vendors who has suggested a lock out agreement with a payment two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This kind of arrangement isn't common in Aldermanbury, conveyancers will often encourage clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor is left exposed. Secondly, there is no certainty that just because the vendor has signed a lock out contract they will sell to you. They may breach the contract if they are offered a large enough offer to do so because an aggrieved purchaser with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still have to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not equalise the financial upside that your seller may obtain by breaking the contract, however morally unworthy that may be.

We note that you have a search directory listing law firms on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a referral fee if I appoint them for our own conveyancing in Aldermanbury?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Aldermanbury.

Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that could affect a commercial estate in Aldermanbury?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Aldermanbury will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers expend in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Aldermanbury. The search result provides definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Aldermanbury.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Aldermanbury it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. Failure to identify developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately can cause delays to Aldermanbury commercial conveyancing deals as well as pose a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not ordered for domestic conveyancing in Aldermanbury.

I acquired my house on 7 February and my personal details are still not registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Aldermanbury expressed confidence that it should be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Aldermanbury particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Aldermanbury registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place once the buyer has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not typically an essential issue but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I work for a long established estate agency in Aldermanbury where we have experienced a few leasehold sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received contradictory information from local Aldermanbury conveyancing solicitors. Can you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

As long as the seller has been the owner 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. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord 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.

We have reached the end of our tether in trying to purchase the freehold in Aldermanbury. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a Aldermanbury conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Aldermanbury premises is 137 & 139 Haberdasher Street in December 2013. The Tribunal determines in accordance with section 48 and Schedule 13 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the extended lease for each Property should be £12,350.00. This case affected 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 72.39 years.
