we are a couple who are purchasing a purpose built flat in Dulwich with a loan from Nottingham Building Society.We use our Dulwich conveyancing solicitor but Nottingham Building Society advised that his firm is not listed on their approved list of firms. we are left little option but to use a Nottingham Building Society panel solicitor or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for a Nottingham Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Nottingham Building Society use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors needs to be on the Nottingham Building Society solicitor panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Nottingham Building Society

Should commercial conveyancing searches disclose impending roadworks that may impact a commercial site in Dulwich?

Me and my brother own a semi-detached Georgian house in Dulwich. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Birmingham Midshires. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Dulwich and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.

Back In 2002, I bought a leasehold house in Dulwich. Conveyancing and Skipton Building Society mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1998. The conveyancing practitioner in Dulwich who acted for me is not around. What should I do?

First contact HMLR to be sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Dulwich conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can one make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Dulwich conveyancing firm to assist?

if there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the LVT to arrive at the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Dulwich property is 60 Taymount Grange Taymount Rise in June 2012. The Tribunal determined the premium at £13,346 for a lease extension of a further 90 years This case related to 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 64 years.

When it comes to my conveyancing in Dulwich should I be paying VAT on the following: (1) Land reg fee on purchase (2) Pre - completion search fee (3) SDLT E submission on purchase (4) Bank TT fee

(1) Land reg fee on purchase - No (2) Pre - completion search fees -No, (such conveyancing searches are HMLR ones and means £4 and possibly £2 bankruptcy per name on your mortgage) (3) SDLT E submission on your purchase - There is no VAT on Stamp Duty. However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some Dulwich conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the conveyancing practitioner's time in submitting the funds this way.
