Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Beckenham

I am looking for value for money conveyancer. Do I opt for a web based conveyancer as opposed to a high street Beckenham conveyancing lawyer?

On the whole conveyancing solicitors in your neck of the woods will benefit from strong relationships with your local authority, which could help with the Beckenham conveyancing searches that your lawyer will need to carry out. It can only help if they have existing relationships with the Land Registry in your area Beckenham, other lawyers in the area and Beckenham Estate Agents.

How do I investigate if the solicitor conducting my conveyancing in Beckenham is on the bank’sconveyancing panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Norwich and Peterborough Building Society thus spending £192.00 in another set of legal fees.

Feel free to make the most of the search tool on this web page. Pick the lender and type ‘Beckenham’ or your location and you will see numerous solicitors based in Beckenham or by proximity to you.

I am purchasing my first flat in Beckenham with a loan from Virgin Money. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it may impact my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

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 have been advised by two or three local property agents in Beckenham to find a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to recommend your services rather than a competitor’s?

We don’t give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

Planning to complete next month on a leasehold property in Beckenham. Conveyancing solicitors assured me that they report fully next week. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?

The report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Beckenham should include some of the following:

    Information as to the provision as set out in the lease to to contribute towards maintenance costs - in respect of the block, and the more general rights a lessee enjoys Will you be prohibited or prevented from having pets in the property? The length of the lease term. You should receive guidance as what happens when the lease expires, and informed of the importance of not letting the lease term falling below eighty years You would want to receive a copy of the lease You should have a good understanding of the building insurance obligations

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without any joy. Can I make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Beckenham conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?

Where there is a missing landlord or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the LVT to assess the price payable.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Beckenham residence is 26 Manor Road in July 2010. the Tribunal decided that price to be paid for the freehold was £12,420 This case was in relation to 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 76.75 and 88.83.

Are Beckenham conveyancing solicitors under an obligation to the Law Society to supply clear conveyancing figures?

Inbuilt into the Solicitors Code of Conduct are prescriptive rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their charges to clients.The Law Society have practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not to be interpreted as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, however, represent the Law Society’s view of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in Beckenham or beyond.
