Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crofton Park

I am buying a property mortgage free in Crofton Park. I have resided for the last 20 years in Crofton Park. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I have knowledge of the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a home loan, then all but one or two of the Crofton Park conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she has a professional duty to take that path of advice. One thing to consider; if you are going to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches reveal. Sometimes houses with functional issues can still show up detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Crofton Park should be able to give you some practical guidance concerning this.

What is the optimum way to find out if the solicitor conducting my conveyancing in Crofton Park is on the lender’sapproved panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Barclays Direct thus spending £175.00 in supplemental legal charges.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Crofton Park and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Crofton Park lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a national conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Crofton Park. We have lived in Crofton Park for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

I am buying a new build flat in Crofton Park. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Crofton Park

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Crofton Park is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Crofton Park are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Crofton Park you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Crofton Park may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I would like to sublet my leasehold flat in Crofton Park. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?

Notwithstanding that your last Crofton Park conveyancing solicitor is not around you can review your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the apartment. The rule is that if the lease is silent, subletting is permitted. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you need to obtain permission from your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet without prior consent. The consent is not allowed to be unreasonably turned down. If your lease prohibits you from letting out the property you will need to ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.

I have had difficulty in trying to purchase the freehold in Crofton Park. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a Crofton Park conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Crofton Park premises is Flat b 14 Kemble Road in May 2014. The Tribunal assessed the value of the premium payable for the lease extension to be £9,761 This case affected 1 flat.
