Having been referred to your site we were going to go ahead with a conveyancing solicitor in Eastcote recommended on your site but have come across alternative costs illustrations on the internet appear cheaper – how come?
You can find plenty of solicitors advertising what appear to be cut price. We would encourage you to think twice about how important this transaction is to you that want to take 'cheap' risks in relation to the quality of the conveyancing. Some embed fees deep into the terms of engagement. The conveyancers that we put forward for conveyancing in Eastcote neverbehave this way.
What is the first thing I need to know concerning purchase conveyancing in Eastcote?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Eastcote and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the seller, estate agent and sometimes your bank. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Eastcote is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the process whose role it is to protect your best interests and to protect you.
We are witnessing a distinct ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone must be at fault for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you should always trust your conveyancer above the other parties in the conveyancing process.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Eastcote?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Eastcote. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I'm purchasing a new build house in Eastcote benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not inform my conveyancer about the deal as it could put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I inherited a two-bedroom flat in Eastcote. Given that I can not reach agreement with the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the amount due for the purchase of the freehold?
Where there is a missing freeholder or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the premium.
An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Eastcote flat is Flat 72 Queens Walk in January 2013. The Tribunals calculated the premium payable to be £22,090. This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired term was 53.26 years.
