This question may be naive but I am new to the home buying as a 1st time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Dalston. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Dalston?

On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Dalston. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be invited to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.

My wife and I purchasing a terrace house in Dalston. The intention is to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to see if these alterations are allowed?

Your solicitor will check the registered title as conveyancing in Dalston can on occasion identify restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain works or need the consent of a 3rd party. Many works need local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Leeds Building Society are being difficult. The Dalston solicitor who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Leeds Building Society are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Leeds Building Society have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Leeds Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Leeds Building Society may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

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

    Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my father I am selling a house in Swansea but reside in Dalston. My conveyancer (based 300 miles from mehas requested that I sign a statutory declaration ahead of the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Dalston who can attest and place their company stamp on the document?

Technically speaking you should not need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Dalston based

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Dalston. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, 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 be sure 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 have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such issues? Can you recommend a Dalston conveyancing firm to help?

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

The unexpired term was 90 (or thereabouts).
