Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Barnet

I am in the market for a reasonably priced conveyancer. Should I go for for a web based conveyancer as opposed to a local East Barnet conveyancing solicitor?

East Barnet is a special area, where neighbourhood know-how helps. The relaxed pace of life is great – just not when it comes to your conveyancing. The solicitors that we recommend combine well rounded East Barnet insight with a proactive, hands-onattitude that ensures everything runs smoothly. It is a definite plus where they enjoy long term relationships with mortgage brokers, search providers, valuers and other East Barnet conveyancing practices

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in East Barnet prior to appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor has said that some lenders may not issue a loan on this type of property.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Nationwide. If you contact us we can investigate further with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in East Barnet. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

What does commercial conveyancing in East Barnet cover?

East Barnet conveyancing for business premises incorporates a wide range of services, given by qualified solicitors, relating to business property. For instance, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the assignment of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of tenancies.

Am I best advised to choose a East Barnet conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? An old friend can handle the legal formalities but her office is over three hundred kilometers away.

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. They will also have local intelligence which is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were impressed that should outweigh using an unknown East Barnet conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.

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?

Most certainly. We are happy to put you in touch with a East Barnet conveyancing firm who can help.

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.
