Please could you vouch for a Norwich and Peterborough Building Society accepted Enfield conveyancing conveyancer that can complete within a short deadline? Am I best advised to choose a high street Enfield conveyancer or a web based conveyancer?
We can recommend some very good Enfield conveyancing firms. Another option is to visit the main road in Enfield. Visit two or three firms and ask to speak with a conveyancing solicitor for a quote. Explain your time frames together with the reasons and ask for an assurance on speed. Choose the lawyer that appears most efficient.
I own a freehold house in Enfield yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Enfield and has limited impact for conveyancing in Enfield but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.
I am selling our home in Enfield and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Enfield. Having lived in Enfield for three years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. 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 ailment)

If all goes to plan we aim to complete the disposal of our £425,000 garden flat in Enfield on Tuesday in a week. The landlords agents has quoted £300 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and 3 years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a leasehold conveyance in Enfield?
Enfield conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not necessitates the purchaser’s lawyer sending questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to address these enquiries the majority will be willing to assist. They may invoice a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some situations it is above £800. The administration charge invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the charge is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have little option but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to complete the sale of your home.
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can one make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Enfield conveyancing firm to assist?
in cases where there is a missing landlord or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to determine the sum to be paid.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Enfield residence is First Floor Flat 109 Lyndhurst Road in May 2010. Following a vesting order by Edmonton County Court on 29th October 2009 the Tribunal decided on a figure of £5,012 for a lease extension. This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired term was 81.79 years.
