Finally the sale completed on my house in Croydon last February but my buyer keeps e-mailing every few hours to moan that their lawyer is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?
Following your disposal your solicitor should forward the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers. Where relevant, your conveyancer must also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been repaid to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion procedures peculiar conveyancing in Croydon.
I moved into my apartment on 5 August and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Croydon said it would be concluded in less than a month. Are titles in Croydon uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Croydon registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. At present roughly three quarters of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not always primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Croydon
Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? 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. 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Croydon is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Croydon are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Croydon you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Croydon may determine 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.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial property in Croydon and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to provides a safeguard to commercial lessees, granting the right to make a request to court for a renewal tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Croydon is one of the numerous locations in which the firms we work with are based
