The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Colliers Wood. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent advised that the seller will only move forward if we appoint their recommended lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in Colliers Wood

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this demand. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to appoint your preferred Colliers Wood conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will earn their estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.
