Can conveyancing in Carshalton to be done in under a month?

In the event that you are under time constraints for your conveyancing it is highly recommended that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will make use of local connections and knowledge.

We are looking to buy a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Carshalton who is on the Co-operative solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Co-operative . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Carshalton.

We are selling our home in Carshalton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used an internet conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Carshalton. We have lived in Carshalton for many years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

I'm purchasing a new build house in Carshalton benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my solicitor about this side-deal as it would affect my loan with Bank of Scotland. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am disposing of a property in Monmouth but I am based in Carshalton. My conveyancer (who is 300 miles from merequires that I sign a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Carshalton to witness this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Carshalton based

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Carshalton. Before I get started I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Carshalton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I have had difficulty in trying to purchase the freehold in Carshalton. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

Where there is a absentee landlord or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to assess the amount due.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Carshalton residence 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 affected 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 72 years.
