I have recentlydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Bethnal Green for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Bethnal Green conveyancing specialists.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Bethnal Green is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Bethnal Green are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bethnal Green you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bethnal Green 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.
Am I right to be wary that estate agents that I am dealing with are suggesting a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a local Bethnal Green conveyancing practice?
As with many professional services, often referrals from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. Nevertheless there are lots of players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all recommend lawyers to choose. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are free to choose your own lawyer. Don't forget that many banks have an approved list of law firms you must use for the mortgage related work in your home move.
Following years of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Bethnal Green. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
Where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the premium.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a Bethnal Green property is 137 & 139 Haberdasher Street in December 2013. The Tribunal determines in accordance with section 48 and Schedule 13 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the extended lease for each Property should be £12,350.00. This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 72.39 years.
In relation to leasehold conveyancing in Bethnal Green what are the most common lease defects?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Bethnal Green. Most leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage A provision to repair to or maintain elements of the building
A defective lease will likely cause problems when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Nationwide Building Society, Leeds Building Society, and TSB all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the buyer to pull out.
How does one remove a departed person's details from the title register for a house in Bethnal Green?
If a Bethnal Green property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors dies, the name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to remove their name as when it comes to a disposal you would just be asked to evidence why the other proprietor is not a party to the conveyance, such as the probate documents.
With a view to making the sale conveyancing simpler in the future you may arrange to have the deceased name erased from the title register by applying to HM Land Registry with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
