I have todayfound out that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Eastcote for a purchase of a leasehold flat 10 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest way to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Eastcote conveyancing specialists.

I'm buying a new build house in Eastcote with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep told me not reveal to my solicitor about the deal as it will jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. 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%.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Eastcote I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Eastcote in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

Some leases for properties in Eastcote do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
