I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (seven years built) in Dalston. The vast majority the properties are already disposed of. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Dalston?

If you getting a mortgage, your bank will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Dalston conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you insist that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to change to another solicitor for your conveyancing in Dalston.

Normally this is needed to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. If any down payment is as part of the total price then this will be asked for shortly prior to contracts are exchanged. The final balance that is due should be transferred shortly before completion.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Dalston

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Please supply a car parking plan. 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. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

Frank (my husband) and I may need to let out our Dalston basement flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a Dalston conveyancing firm in 2004 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?

Some leases for properties in Dalston do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I inherited a garden flat in Dalston. In the absence of agreement between myself and the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the amount due for the purchase of the freehold?

Where there is a missing freeholder or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the LVT to arrive at the price payable.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Dalston premises is 150 Amhurst Road in December 2013. The tribunal concluded that the premium to be paid by the applicant for the enfranchisement of the subject property was £43,500. This case was in relation to 4 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 90 (or thereabouts).
