Just acquired a terraced house in Avery Hill , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Avery Hill conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure the land registry aspects are concluded.

As far as conveyancing in Avery Hill registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected once the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore registration formalities is not typically an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am buying a new build apartment in Avery Hill. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Avery Hill

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Avery Hill is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Avery Hill are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Avery Hill you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Avery Hill may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

My uncle has suggested that I appoint his conveyancers in Avery Hill. Do I take his guidance?

There are no two ways about it it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to get recommendations from friends or relatives who have previously instructed the conveyancer you're considering.

My husband and I are disposing of a Avery Hill house we inherited six years ago in 2011. I have over a decades worth of conveyancing know-how and, now retired, wish to undertake my own legal work. The buyer's solicitor has informed me that their building society will not allow you to do your own conveyancing requiring the funds to be passed via a solicitor's bank account.

Mortgage requirements to solicitors from all mainstream lenders state that If the vendor does not have legal representation the buyer’s lawyers should check whether the mortgage company needs to be told so that a decision can be reached as to whether or not they are willing to progress.
