Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bow

Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Bow who acted for me 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house move (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a mortgage from Birmingham Midshires. It looks as though am now being charged double. Stick with what I know or do I seek out an alternative property lawyer?

The estimate fees appear a tad high. If you shop around you could decrease the fees slightly by as much as £100 plus VAT. That being said, if you were content with the conveyancing the firm gave you couldcome to regret opting for an an unknown conveyancer. Remember to enquire that the solicitor can act for Birmingham Midshires. Do make use of our search tool to get a quote a Bow conveyancing firm on the Birmingham Midshires approved list of lawyers, which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Bow.

I am purchasing a property for cash in Bow. I have lived for the last 20 years in Bow. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I have knowledge of the area and road intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Bow conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your conveyancer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he has a professional duty to take that path of guidance. Do consider; if you are likely to dispose of the house in the future, it will be of relevance to your prospective purchaser what the searches reveal. Sometimes properties with no practical issues can still reveal adverse search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Bow should be able to give you some helpful advice concerning this.

What are your top tips when it comes to choosing a Bow conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

When appointing a property lawyer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Bow conveyancing firm) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We advise that you talk with two or three firms including non Bow conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be of use:

    If they are not ALEP accredited then what is the reason? Can they put you in touch with clients in Bow who can give a testimonial?

Following months of dialogue we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Bow. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

if there is a missing freeholder or if there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the LVT to assess the sum to be paid.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Bow premises is 26 Rhondda Grove in June 2009. The net price payable by the leaseholders as determined by the Tribunal was £3,015.13. This comprised £11,300 premium for the reversion less £8,284.87 costs as ordered by the County Court.
