Please help - my lawyer advises that breach of easement insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Beacontree Heath?

The right level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and Chelsea Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

I am purchasing a property in Beacontree Heath. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Yorkshire BS be concerned?

Given that your lender is Yorkshire BS your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing instructions set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Yorkshire BS. The CML Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease fails to satisfy these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Beacontree Heath.

I have instructed a Beacontree Heath property lawyer having checked that they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Beacontree Heath postcode.

Last July I purchased a leasehold property in Beacontree Heath. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I am the leaseholder of a ground-floor 1950’s flat in Beacontree Heath. Given that I can not reach agreement with the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the sum payable for a lease extension?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Beacontree Heath conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Beacontree Heath flat is 49 Aldborough Road South in July 2012. The Tribunal decided that the premium payable for the grant of the new lease was £13,925 This case affected 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 61.36 years.

Is there a distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Beacontree Heath?

Conveyancing - in Beacontree Heath or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are purchasing and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for reducing the price down or asking the seller to fix the defects prior to you move in.
