Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Bethnal Green , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My Bethnal Green conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is addressed.

As far as conveyancing in Bethnal Green registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently in the region of 80% of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration takes place once the buyer is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not usually top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

How does conveyancing in Bethnal Green differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Bethnal Green come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Bethnal Green usually purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Bethnal Green or who has acted in the same development.

I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Bethnal Green prior to appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Halifax. If you e-mail us we can investigate further with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Bethnal Green. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £225,000 flat in Bethnal Green on Monday in a week. The freeholder has quoted £312 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Bethnal Green?

Bethnal Green conveyancing on leasehold apartments ordinarily involves fees being invoiced by management companies :

    Addressing conveyancing due diligence enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Bethnal Green Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Bethnal Green leasehold property is £350. For Bethnal Green conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to supply answers.

After years of correspondence 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?

if there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Bethnal Green residence 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 related to 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 72.39 years.

I have recently placed an offer on an apartment in Bethnal Green and the broker that we are dealing with recommended his conveyancer. They quoted nine hundred pounds including VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound steep?

Don't just go on a single estimate. You should seek like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Bethnal Green. Then pick one that you trust and just as important, is on the approved panel of the lender that you are sourcing your mortgage from.
