Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Camden

Having sold my house in Camden last April yet the purchaser is whats apping me to say her conveyancer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale formalities now that I have sold?

Post completion of your sale your lawyer should deliver the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. Depending on the transaction, your solicitor must also evidence that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been discharged to the purchasers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion procedures just for conveyancing in Camden.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Camden. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Camden?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Camden. Your solicitors will transfer the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be able to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

We are planning to move home in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Camden. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across your page.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from the estate agent but this can only occur once the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you should tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you locate a conveyancing in Camden or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Camden.

Can you point me to a directory of UBS panel conveyancers in Camden on the Building Society Association’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of mortgage companies make their panel listings available on the web. If you are seeking to appoint a Camden property lawyer on the UBS please use our tool.

My colleague recommended that if I am buying in Camden I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Camden conveyancing searches. It is a large report of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out important information about Camden around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Camden Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Camden.

Is it best to appoint a Camden conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am buying? An old friend can perform the legal work but her office is approximately 350miles drive away.

The benefit of a local Camden conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and in the main were content that should outweigh using an unknown Camden conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agency in Camden where we have witnessed a number of flat sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Camden conveyancing solicitors. Please can you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start 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 sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord 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 purchaser.

After months of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Camden. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Camden premises is Flat 2 27 Mackeson Road in December 2012. The Tribunal assessed the value of the lease extension premium at £35,435 and rounded the figure to £35,500 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 64.77 years.

I bought a flat in Camden last 18/4/2023 and to date it is still not registered with the Land Registry. It is part of a development site and my solicitor told me that it may take over a year to complete the registration formalities. I have contacted the Land Registry directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. What can I do?
