There are a number of properties in Chinatown which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Chinatown should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

My offer on a house in Chinatown has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on somewhere, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Chinatown. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Chinatown conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their lawyer to move forward with searches.

What will a local search inform me about the property we're buying in Chinatown?

Chinatown conveyancing often starts with the submitting local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search company for instance Xpress Legal The local search is essential in every Chinatown conveyancing purchase; as long as you wish to avoid any nasty surprises after you move into your property. The search should provide data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 topic sections.

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agency in Chinatown where we have experienced a few leasehold sales put at risk as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Chinatown conveyancing firms. Could you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such issues? Can you recommend a Chinatown conveyancing firm to represent me?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Chinatown conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Chinatown flat is 36 New Wanstead in August 2010. The Tribunal arrived at a valuation of the premium for the freehold of £22,359. This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 73.92 years.
