Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Clerkenwell

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.

Should I be wary about estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending an online conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Clerkenwell conveyancing company?

As is the case with lots of professional services, often input from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are numerous parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may suggest lawyers to choose. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are free to choose your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of law firms you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your home move.

I am hoping to exchange soon on a leasehold property in Clerkenwell. Conveyancing lawyers assured me that they are sending me a report tomorrow. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?

The report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Clerkenwell should include some of the following:

    Where does the liability rest to repair and maintain the block. It is important that you know which party is responsible the repair and maintenance of all parts of the block and estate You should have a good understanding of the building insurance requirements specifics of the parties to the lease, for instance these could be the leaseholder, superior lessor, landlord Alterations to the premises

After years of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Clerkenwell. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to judgment on the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Clerkenwell premises 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 related to 1 flat. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 66.8 years.

We have had DIP from Birmingham Midshires who have advised that they will loan up to £300k. When do I need to instruct a solicitor for conveyancing? Clerkenwell is where we plan to move to.

You can instruct a lawyer now so that the property lawyer can open the file so they can do the AML checks etc. If and when you wish them to start work they will seek a payment on account normally approximately £175. That would generally be after you have the loan offer from the lender and survey report, however if you wish to speed matters you can start sooner even though you may be risking some expense.
