We hired a high street solicitor for our conveyancing in Brentford yesterday. Going through the terms of engagement I seeI am liable for costs even if our purchase doesn't happen. Would I be best advised to use an internet conveyancing brokerage offering no move no charge conveyancing in Brentford?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to cover the transactions that do not go ahead. Also remember that these schemes rarely cover expenditure by way of example Brentford conveyancing search expenses.
3 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Brentford concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Brentford is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Brentford are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Brentford you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Brentford may decide 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.
How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business premises in Brentford and how can you help?
The 1954 Act provides a safeguard to commercial tenants, giving them the legal entitlement to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of an expired lease. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing practices who use the act to your advantage and handle your commercial conveyancing in Brentford
As co-executor for the estate of my uncle I am disposing of a property in Cardiff but I am based in Brentford. My solicitor (approximately 235 kilometers awayneeds me to sign a statutory declaration ahead of completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Brentford to witness and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you should not need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are based in Brentford
Should one remove a departed person's details from the title deeds for a house in Brentford?
Where a Brentford property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors dies, their name will not immediately be removed from the Land Registry title. You are not required to remove their name as when it comes to a disposal you would just be required to evidence as to the reason the co proprietor is not included in the conveyance, usually this is in the form of the probate documents.
With a view to making things smoother for the sale of the property you can arrange to have the deceased name removed from the title register by applying to the land registry with evidence of the death. There is no charge from the Registry for this service.
