Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Barking

We selected a Barking based solicitor for our conveyancing in Barking today. After carefully reading the Ts and Cs it is apparent thatI am on the hook for fees even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or instruct a web based lawyer who offer no completion no cost conveyancing in Barking?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to neutralise those conveyances that do not proceed. Also remember that these deals generally do not cover expenditure e.g. Barking conveyancing search charges.

How does conveyancing in Barking differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Barking contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Barking typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Barking or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Barking I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Barking suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

What does commercial conveyancing in Barking cover?

Barking conveyancing for business premises covers a broad array of advice, offered by qualified solicitors, relating to business property. By way of example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the transfer of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of tenancies.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Barking. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is registered - and most are in Barking - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I inherited a basement flat in Barking. In the absence of agreement between myself and the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the premium due for the purchase of the freehold?

Most certainly. We are happy to put you in touch with a Barking conveyancing firm who can help.

This case related to 2 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 65.5 years.

I am an executor of my recently deceased mum’s Will, with a house in Barking which will be marketed. The house has never been registered at the Land Registry and I'm told that many purchasers will insist that it is in place before they will proceed. What's the procedure for this?

In the situation you refer to it seems advisable to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. The Land Registry’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
