Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Dollis Hill

My mortgage broker has requested my Dollis Hill law firm’s panel member for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. What is the best way to obtain this. I have called my local Dollis Hill branch but they don't know it.

What is your number one tip for finding a conveyancing solicitor in Dollis Hill

It would be unwise to be seduced by the cheapest Dollis Hill conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

I am expecting a OIP from Barclays this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Barclays recommend any Dollis Hill solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Dollis Hill solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a Dollis Hill conveyancer on the Clydesdale panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Clydesdale mortgage has been paid off.

I have recentlydiscovered that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Dollis Hill for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Dollis Hill conveyancing specialists.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Dollis Hill is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Dollis Hill are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Dollis Hill you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Dollis Hill may decide 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 am selling my property. My previous conveyancers closed down. I am in need of a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Dollis Hill if that makes things easier.

All being well we will complete the disposal of our £425,000 apartment in Dollis Hill next Wednesday. The landlords agents has quoted £348 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Dollis Hill?

For most leasehold sales in Dollis Hill conveyancing will involve, questions about the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Addressing pre-exchange questions Where consent is required before sale in Dollis Hill Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Dollis Hill leasehold premises is £350. For Dollis Hill conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to supply answers.

I am the proprietor of a a ground floor purpose built flat in Dollis Hill. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the sum due for the purchase of the freehold?

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

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Dollis Hill property is 12 Deacon Road in November 2012. the premium to be paid for the grant of the new lease was the sum of £31 ,635.00 (Thirty-One thousand and six hundred and thirty-five Pounds). The matter was then returned to the Willesden County Court for the completion of the grant of the new lease in substitution for the existing lease on payment into court the sum of £31,635.00 less the sum of £2,890.20 assessed costs incurred by the leaseholder. Thus the net sum of £28,744.80 was to be paid into court. This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 61.98 years.
