We are about to exchange on the purchase of a house in East Beckton but as a consequence of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the seller of six thousand pounds by way of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement however Principality are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?
Any conveyancer being on a Principality approved list is required to inform Principality of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to report the price change to Principality then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Principality and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in East Beckton.

I acquired my house on 13 May and my personal details is not yet registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in East Beckton expressed confidence that it will be concluded in less than a month. Are properties in East Beckton uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in East Beckton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any 3rd parties. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration takes place after the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I’m about to sell my 2 bed apartment in East Beckton.Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon however I have just received a quarterly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as normal given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be apportionedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process
