We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would much rather use a high street conveyancing solicitor in Buckhurst Hill?

You should check but the the probability is that allocate you one of their panel lawyers should you accept the "fee-free" deal. Contact the lender to explore if they offer you a cash alternative.

My wife and I are in the process of viewing flats in Buckhurst Hill and I am about to put in an offer. Is it best to have a conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a home loan with Barclays.

It would be wise to instigate your search sooner rather than later.

All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Santander. Is it usual for Santander to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Buckhurst Hill is approved on their conveyancing panel? Santander have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Buckhurst Hill is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Buckhurst Hill are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Buckhurst Hill you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Buckhurst Hill may determine 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 premises.

I work for a reputable estate agent office in Buckhurst Hill where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Buckhurst Hill conveyancing firms. Can you shed some light as to whether the vendor of a flat can initiate the lease extension process for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

Following months of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Buckhurst Hill. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

in cases where there is a missing landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to decide the premium.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Buckhurst Hill residence is 201 & 201a St. Barnabas Road in October 2013. The Tribunal decided that the price to be paid by the Applicants for the freehold interest is £20,071. This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 69.26 years.
