I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (seven years built) in Cricklewood. Almost all the appartments are already occupied. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Cricklewood?
A big part of the Cricklewood conveyancing process is the conveyancing searches. There are hundreds companies delivering Cricklewood conveyancing searches, as well straight from the local authority. These are generally termed personal search companies and they produce, not surprisingly, personal searches. However, all Local Authority Search conveyancing products have one thing in common - they must obtain their data from the local authoritative source.
What will a local search tell me regarding the house my wife and I buying in Cricklewood?
Cricklewood conveyancing often commences with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search company for example Xpress Legal The local search is essential in every Cricklewood conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any nasty once you have moved into your new home. The search should supply data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant 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 thirteen topic areas.

I am the registered owner of a garden flat in Cricklewood. Given that I can not reach agreement with the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the sum due for a lease extension?
in cases where there is a missing landlord or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to assess the premium.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Cricklewood property is 73 and 73a St. Pauls Avenue in October 2013. the Tribunal held in accordance with section32 and Schedule 6 of the Leasehold Reform,Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the enfranchisement was fifty three thousand three hundred and sixty one pounds (£53,361.00) This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 64.61 and 67.18.
My partner and I have an offer in principle from Chelsea Building Society who indicated we could borrow up to £350k. At what point do we need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Cricklewood is where we are .
You can appoint a solicitor now and ask them to open a file for you. This will enable: 1) the selling agent to issue a Sales Memo to all parties 2) the seller’s property lawyer to submit the draft contract. However, do not instruct your conveyancing practitioner to order searches until you have your valuation report via Chelsea Building Society and you are happy to move forward.
