I plan on purchasing property in Brondesbury. My property lawyer has never been on on the lender approved list. Can I still retain my Brondesbury conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender approved list?
Various options include

If you are instructing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Brondesbury conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We advise that you talk with several firms including non Brondesbury conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be helpful:
If the firm is not ALEP accredited then why not? Can they put you in touch with clients in Brondesbury who can give a testimonial?
Notwithstanding our best efforts, we have been unsuccessful in trying to purchase the freehold in Brondesbury. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?
in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to judgment on the amount due.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Brondesbury residence is 50a Cavendish Road in April 2014. The Tribunal determines that the premium payable by the Applicant in respect of the extension of the lease for the flat was £82,319. This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired term was 49.26 years.
I’m about to sell my basement flat in Brondesbury.Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed however I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as usual as all ground rent and maintenance charges will be allottedon completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
