Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Beckenham

Having sold my house in Beckenham last May yet the purchaser is e-mailing daily to say her lawyer is waiting to hear from mine. What should have happened now that I have sold?

Following your house sale your lawyer is obliged to forward the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s conveyancer. If applicable, your conveyancer should also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been discharged to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion steps unique to conveyancing in Beckenham.

I have an AIP. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel solicitor as I would much rather appoint a Beckenham based conveyancing firm?

Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel solicitors where you take up the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the bank and ask if they offer you a monetary alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Beckenham.

If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Beckenham what would it be?

It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Beckenham conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

A colleague pointed out to me me that in purchasing a property in Beckenham there could be a number of restrictions prohibiting external alterations to the property. Is this right?

There are a number of properties in Beckenham which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Beckenham should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Beckenham. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Barclays be concerned?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Barclays your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Barclays. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Barclays where a lease does not satisfy these conditions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Beckenham.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Beckenham

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply a car parking plan.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Beckenham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Beckenham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
