The benefit of a local East Barnet conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to execute documents, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate.

I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agency in East Barnet where we have witnessed a number of leasehold sales jeopardised due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given conflicting advice from local East Barnet conveyancing solicitors. Can you clarify whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.
An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I am the leaseholder of a second floor flat in East Barnet. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the amount payable for a lease extension?

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a East Barnet residence is 23 Beaconsfield Road in July 2013. The Tribunals decided that the amount payable was £31,203 for the freehold. This case was in relation to 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 70.31 years.
My intention is to acquire a garden apartment in East Barnet. Conveyancing solicitor is waiting for, from the seller, building insurance schedule. This morning I was advised that the owner must forward the insurance schedule for the flat above as well. Why would my lawyer want to review the insurance for the flat above? Is it strictly necessary? We have been waiting for the last 3 weeks…
It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in East Barnet to find Conveyancing in East Barnet in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the whole premises - which is definitely better. Do double check with your conveyancing practitioner but it would seem that your lawyer is seeking to establish that the complete building is insured. Insuring your residence is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the other flat cannot be reinstated due to lack of insurance cover.
