I am the leaseholder of a garden flat in Colliers Wood. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the premium payable for the purchase of the freehold?

if there is a absentee freeholder or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to judgment on the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Colliers Wood flat is 14 Nutwell Street in January 2014. The premium payable for the acquisition of a new lease of the subject premises was in the sum of £30,523 This case was in relation to 1 flat.

My wife and I are buying a garden flat in Colliers Wood. When we first instructed lawyer, they told us that they were on all mainstream mortgage company panels. The financial adviser called yesterday to say that they are not on the Aldermore approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Should we just pick a different solicitor that is on their approved list or should we pay for dual representation, with Aldermore selecting their own approved property lawyer.

Where you are acquiring a property needing a mortgage it is usual for the purchaser’s lawyers to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a conveyancer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the property lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the lawyer has to meet. Some lenders now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should call Aldermore to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Aldermore's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Colliers Wood lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
