Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Finchley

I am buying a property without a mortgage in Finchley. I have been residing for the last twelve years in Finchley. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Finchley conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your conveyancer will try and steer you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she has a professional duty to take that path of advice. One thing to consider; if you are going to dispose of the house at a future date, it will be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with apparent issues can still show up unpredicted search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Finchley should provide you some helpful advice concerning this.

We note that you have a post code search directory listing law firms on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a referral fee if I instruct them for our own conveyancing in Finchley?

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Finchley. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Finchley

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? 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 property in Finchley prior to appointing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some lenders may not issue a loan on such a house.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you e-mail us we can investigate further with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Finchley. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Finchley to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

Am I right to be concerned by estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Finchley conveyancing firm?

As with many professional services, often referrals from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are many parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies may suggest solicitors to choose. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there exists a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to choose your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that most mortgage providers have an approved list of solicitors you must use for the mortgage aspect of your transaction.

Having spent years of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Finchley. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a missing freeholder or if there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the LVT to determine the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Finchley flat is Ground Floor 110 Station Road in June 2013. The Tribunal found that the premium payable for a lease extension should be £31,665. This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired term was 56.65 years.

What makes a Finchley lease unmortgageable?

Leasehold conveyancing in Finchley is not unique. Most leases are individual and drafting errors can result in certain clauses are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the premises

A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Halifax, Chelsea Building Society, and Britannia all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.
