Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Eastcote

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Eastcote and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Eastcote lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Eastcote. We have lived in Eastcote for 4 years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Eastcote 5 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?

These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your solicitor should know precisely where to look for all the appropriate paperwork so you may purchase or sell your house without any difficulty. Where copies are not available, your solicitor may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your property.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Eastcote. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Eastcote

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

I opted to have a survey done on a house in Eastcote prior to retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders may not grant a mortgage on this type of house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can check via the relevant bank.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my uncle I am selling a property in Cardiff but reside in Eastcote. My lawyer (who is 235 kilometers awayrequires that I sign a stat dec before the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Eastcote who can attest this legal document for me?

Technically speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Eastcote based

I have recently realised that I have 68 years remaining on my flat in Eastcote. I now wish to get lease extension but my landlord is missing. What should I do?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have made all reasonable attempts to track down the landlord. In some cases an enquiry agent would be helpful to try and locate and prepare an expert document which can be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer in relation to devolving into the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Eastcote.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without getting anywhere. Can I apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Eastcote conveyancing firm to represent me?

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

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Eastcote premises 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 remaining number of years on the lease was 53.26 years.
