Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Canning Town

My partner’s uncle is a property lawyer. I hope that I'll be able to get preferential fee for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of fees would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Canning Town?

You should compare pricing. Make use of our search tool on this site. You will notice that prices do contrast greatly but the service one can expect differ between conveyancers as is the case with most professions.

3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Canning Town completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 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 property 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.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Canning Town. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Canning Town

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Canning Town I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Canning Town for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

I was recommended by numerous selling agents in Canning Town to select a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to offer your services rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

Should I instruct a Canning Town conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can execute the legal work but they are based approximately 350kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a local Canning Town conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, present your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Canning Town know how is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and in the main were impressed that should surpass using an unknown Canning Town conveyancing lawyer just because they are round the corner.
