We are getting the release of further funds on our mortgage from TSB as we intend to conduct renovations to our property in Carshalton. Do we need to choose a high street Carshalton solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?

TSB don't usually instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the TSB list.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Principality are being a right pain. The Carshalton solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Principality are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Principality have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Principality have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Principality may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I had an offer accepted on a property in Carshalton on 10/6/2019, valuation was booked five days later, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

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

I today plan to offer on a house that appears to tick a lot of boxes, at a great price which is making it more attractive. I have since found out that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a house with a leasehold title in Carshalton. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been instructed. Will they explain the issues?

Most houses in Carshalton are freehold rather than leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can help the conveyancing process. We note that you are buying in Carshalton so you should seriously consider looking for a Carshalton conveyancing solicitor and be sure that they are used to transacting on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. Being a lessee you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want with the house. The lease comes with conditions for example obtaining the landlord’sconsent to carry out alterations. You may also be required to pay a service charge towards the upkeep of the communal areas where the house is part of an estate. Your solicitor will advise you fully on all the issues.

Following months of dialogue we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Carshalton. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

Most definitely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Carshalton conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Carshalton property is 21 & 23 Carshalton Grove in May 2009. the Tribunal adopted the figures presented as the premiums payable by the Applicant i.e. a total of £20,750. This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 72 years.

My partner and I are FTB’s just having agreed a price on a property in Carshalton, and are now looking to get solicitors appointed. I have used the different comparison tools and the quotes are from all over the country. Is it important to have a Carshalton solicitor local to the prospective house? We are willing to do all the communicating electronically, but I assume at some point we will need to physically go into the conveyancer's office to sign contracts?

The solicitor does not need to be in Carshalton, but opting for local means that you can visit their offices if required, for instance, if a signature is immediately necessary. Also, a Carshalton solicitor have established relationships with local agents and (if the vendor has instructed a local conveyancer) with them, which will help keep things moving faster.
