Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Dollis Hill from the point of view of expediting the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Dollis Hill can be reduced if you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ representatives.
  • A minority of Dollis Hill leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this applies to your lease, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their solicitors. If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s consent? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Dollis Hill state that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring require a licence issued by the Landlord approving such alterations. Should you fail to have the paperwork in place you should not contact the landlord without contacting your conveyancer first. You believe that you know the number of years left on your lease but it would be advisable verify this by asking your lawyers. A buyer’s conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is less than 80 years. It is therefore important at an early stage that you consider whether the lease term for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale.

My wife and I have hit a brick wall in seeking a lease extension in Dollis Hill. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

in cases where there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to calculate the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Dollis Hill residence 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 term as at the valuation date was 61.98 years.

Please can you recommend a good Dollis Hill property lawyer for purchasing a flat? A friend suggested one but their quote was £1250 for a 225k property. That seems a wee bit steep. The lender will be Yorkshire BS.
