My wife and I are about to complete on the purchase of a property in Colney Hatch but as a consequence of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the owner of £3k taking the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of a side agreement yet Principality will not agree to this. Why were they informed?

Any lawyer that is on a Principality approved list is obliged to advise Principality of any amendments to the purchase price.

In addition, Principality and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Colney Hatch.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Colney Hatch. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I inherited a first floor flat in Colney Hatch. In the absence of agreement between myself and the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the premium payable for the purchase of the freehold?

Where there is a absentee landlord or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to arrive at the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Colney Hatch flat is 90 & 96 Poplar Grove in June 2013. It was held by the Tribunal that the premium to be paid for the new lease in respect of each of the flats referred should be £17,942 This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 68 years.

My mother and father are unable to locate their Colney Hatch land registry title on the site. They have a vague memory back in the 70’s when they bought the house there were complications regarding the post code not being identified on some systems.

Nearly all residences in Colney Hatch should appear. Have you attempted a search with just the postcode. Usually it should identify all the residences within that postcode. Where recorded it will show up with a title number. Where they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be unregistered. The address could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to locate the original title documentation which might be with your parent’s mortgage company.
