We were about to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in East Croydon endorsed by you but stumbled across some other quotes on the internet appear less pricey – how come?

One can find hundreds of conveyancing outfits advertising at first sight what seems to be very low prices. You should think twice about how important this transaction is to you that you are willing to take 'cheap' risks concerning the standard of the legal work. Some hide additional charges deep into the terms of engagement. The solicitors that we put forward for conveyancing in East Croydon neverbehave this way.

We are acquiring our first home. The lawyer has texted usto enquire if we wish to take out supplemental conveyancing searches. As novices we have no idea as to what's appropriate for conveyancing in East Croydon

The extent of East Croydon conveyancing searches depends entirely on the premises, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your familiarity of the locality and risks, your general appetite to risk. What is important is that you properly appreciate what information the searches could provide. You may then decide if you consider that you need that information. If unsure, ask your conveyancer to advise.

I own a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in East Croydon. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Barnsley Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. Is it worth asking Barnsley Building Society to clarify?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be 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 East Croydon and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in East Croydon I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in East Croydon in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

Completion is due on the disposal of our £400,000 garden flat in East Croydon next Friday. The landlords agents has quoted £384 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a flat conveyance in East Croydon?

East Croydon conveyancing on leasehold flats more often than not requires the purchaser’s lawyer sending enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer these enquiries most will be willing to do so. They are entitled to charge a reasonable charge for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it is above £800. The management information fee demanded by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration charges, otherwise the charge is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have no choice but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.

Having spent months of negotiations we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in East Croydon. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

if there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the LVT to arrive at the price payable.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a East Croydon flat is 29 Woodstock Road in April 2014. the Tribunal determined that the premiums to be paid into court in respect of the purchase of the freehold registered at HMLR under Title N0.SY3997 should be £7,217. This case related to 4 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 98 years.

Is it true that a East Croydon conveyancing firm got sued by clients for not carrying out comprehensive conveyancing investigations?

Our attention has not be brought to such a East Croydon conveyancing claim but according to a recent report, clients buying a house elsewhere in England successfully sued their conveyancing practitioner due to development permission to build a wind farm failing to be identified in conveyancing searches.

If you are thinking of buying a home in East Croydon It is essential that your conveyancer conduct all East Croydon conveyancing searches required to ensure you have relevant and up to date information before purchasing a home in East Croydon.
