Finally the sale completed on my house in Canning Town last June but the buyer keeps Skype messaging me complaining that her solicitor is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What should have happened following completion?
After completion of your sale your solicitor is committed to forward the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your solicitor should also send confirmation that the home loan has been repaid to the purchasers solicitors. There are no post completion steps unique to conveyancing in Canning Town.
My property lawyer in Canning Town is not listed on the The Mortgage Works Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my family solicitor even though they are not on the The Mortgage Works list of approved lawyers?
Your options are as follows:
- Carry on with your existing Canning Town lawyers but The Mortgage Works will need to use a conveyancer on their panel. This will inevitably rack up the overall conveyancing fees and cause frustration.
- Choose a new lawyer to to deal with the purchase, obviously checking they are The Mortgage Works approved.
- Try to convince your The Mortgage Works solicitor to try to join the The Mortgage Works panel

Helen (my wife) and I may need to let out our Canning Town basement flat temporarily due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Canning Town conveyancing practice in 2004 but they have closed and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
Some leases for properties in Canning Town do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
After months of dialogue we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Canning Town. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
if there is a missing freeholder or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the price payable.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Canning Town residence is 46 Credon Road in January 2014. On 11 September 2013 Deputy District Judge Price sitting at the Bow County Court made a vesting order that the freeholder surrender his lease and be granted a new lease of the Premises on such terms as may be determined by the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber).The appropriate sum as concluded by the Tribunal was £7225 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 69.77 years.
