Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Blackfriars

Our Blackfriars solicitor has identified a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is in the legal papers for the property. My lawyer says that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action legitimate?

Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Blackfriars and how can you help?

The 1954 Act gives security of tenure to business tenants, granting the a statutory right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end.

I own a leasehold house in Blackfriars. Conveyancing and Bank of Scotland mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1991. The conveyancing practitioner in Blackfriars who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?

First contact the Land Registry to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to instruct a Blackfriars conveyancing firm to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can one apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Blackfriars conveyancing firm to assist?

if there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to determine the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Blackfriars premises is Flat 89 Trinity Court Grays Inn Road in February 2013. the Tribunal found that the premium to be paid by the tenant on the grant of a new lease, in accordance with section 56 and Schedule 13 to the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 should be £36,229. This case affected 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 66.8 years.

My partner and I have recently had an offer agreed on a apartment and had meeting on Tuesday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They advised me that when it comes to selecting a lawyer that unless they are on their approved panel of conveyancing practitioners then we will have to pay out an additional fee of £200. This is is due to the fact that they will then have to select a property lawyer to act for them in addition to the one we appoint for ourselves and we will be on the hook for their invoice. I have requested Leeds Building Society to provide me with a list so I can obtain estimates only from their approved conveyancers but was told that I need to check with each individual solicitor to see if they are on the panel. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?

Ask Leeds Building Society what their criteria for joining their panel is for a solicitor.Thereafter ask the conveyancing practitioner of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on mortgages for Leeds Building Society before. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with Leeds Building Society. Another option is to utilise our search tool and we may be able to identify a lawyer in Blackfriars on the approved list for Leeds Building Society.
