Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Charterhouse

Having been suggested to visit your organisation we were going to appoint conveyancing solicitor in Charterhouse listed using your search tool but stumbled across alternative costs illustrations on the internet look cheaper – how come?

There are many firms of conveyancers offering at first sight what seems to be the cheapest conveyancing in Charterhouse. We suggest that you think twice about how important this transaction is to you that want to be penny wise pound foolish concerning the standard of the legal work. Many of them accentuate a low quote to tempt you but plant additional fees in the small print..

My partner and I are planning on selling our property in Charterhouse and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a national conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Charterhouse. We have lived in Charterhouse for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? 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 health insurance to cover that same ailment)

I used Stirling Law several years ago for my conveyancing in Charterhouse. Now, I need the files however cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

Do contact the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to help locate your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Charterhouse of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously hired, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent informed us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use their recommended solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer used to conveyancing in Charterhouse

It is improbable the sellers are behind this. Should the vendor want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is counter productive. Contact the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Charterhouse conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Charterhouse. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Charterhouse - 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 tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such matters? Can you recommend a Charterhouse conveyancing firm to assist?

in cases where there is a missing freeholder 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 Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Charterhouse flat is Flat 89 Trinity Court Grays Inn Road in February 2013. the Tribunal found that the premium to be paid by the tenant on the grant of a new lease, in accordance with section 56 and Schedule 13 to the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 should be £36,229. This case affected 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 66.8 years.

We are expecting to exchange on the purchase a house in Charterhouse but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have negotiated compensation from the vendor of five thousand pounds by way of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however the lender will not permit this. Why were they involved?

Your lawyer that is on the bank approved list is duty bound to advise the mortgage company of any variations to the purchase price. In the event that you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to report the price change to your lender then they would have to discontinue acting for you and the lender.
