My conveyancer has uncovered a a legal deficiency with the lease for the flat we are purchasing in Edmonton. The other side have put forward defective title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our property lawyer says that he must ensure that the lender is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?

I’m about to sell my ground floor apartment in Edmonton. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the maintenance contribution as you normally would as all rents and maintenance charges will be apportioned as 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 subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

Is there a difference between surveying and conveyancing in Edmonton?

Conveyancing - in Edmonton or anywhere in England and Wales - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for negotiating the buying price down or asking the seller to remedy the defects prior to you move in.
