This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a ground floor flat in Bowes Park. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Bowes Park?

On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Bowes Park. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to collect the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home.

Please help - my lawyer says that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Bowes Park?

The appropriate level of defective lease indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Halifax and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

Is it the case that all Bowes Park conveyancing solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Co-operative approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be overseen by the CLC.

How does conveyancing in Bowes Park differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Bowes Park approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because builders in Bowes Park usually purchase the land, 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bowes Park or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Bowes Park I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bowes Park suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Helen (my wife) and I may need to let out our Bowes Park garden flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We used a Bowes Park conveyancing practice in 2001 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

Notwithstanding that your last Bowes Park conveyancing solicitor is no longer available you can review your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the apartment. The rule is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you need to obtain permission from your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining permission. The consent should not be unreasonably turned down. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord for their consent.

My wife and I have hit a brick wall in trying to purchase the freehold in Bowes Park. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

Where there is a missing freeholder or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Bowes Park property is First Floor Flat 109 Lyndhurst Road in May 2010. Following a vesting order by Edmonton County Court on 29th October 2009 the Tribunal decided on a figure of £5,012 for a lease extension. This case affected 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 81.79 years.
