Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brockley

What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Brockley

It would be unwise to be swayed by the cheapest Brockley conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Brockley

There are many registered licenced Conveyancers in Brockley and Solicitor practices in Brockley offering conveyancing We would stress that the two are regulated professionals specialising in the legal work in transferring property. They may both also deal with other property legal work such as remortgage conveyancing, lease extensions and transfer of equity conveyancing.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Co-operative are being a right pain. The Brockley solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Co-operative are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Various internet forums that I have visited warn that are the main cause of hinderance in Brockley conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Brockley.

three months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Brockley took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 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 residence 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.

I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Brockley before appointing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend not give a mortgage on such a property.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Brockley. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Last March I purchased a leasehold flat in Brockley. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I am the proprietor of a ground floor flat in Brockley. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the sum due for a lease extension?

Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a Brockley conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Brockley premises is Flat b 14 Kemble Road in May 2014. The Tribunal assessed the value of the premium payable for the lease extension to be £9,761 This case was in relation to 1 flat.
