My partner and I are buying our first property. The solicitor has e-mailedto ask if we want to take out extra conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's needed for conveyancing in Fitzrovia

The range of Fitzrovia conveyancing searches depends entirely on the property, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your familiarity of the area and risks, your general appetite to risk. What is important is that you adequately understand what information the searches could provide. Then you can decide if you personally think you need that information. If unclear, ask your conveyancer to explain.

We are purchasing a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Fitzrovia who is on the Coventry BS solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Coventry BS . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Fitzrovia.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to to identify practices on the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society conveyancing panel for example in Fitzrovia?

My cousin has suggested that I use his conveyancers in Fitzrovia. Should I use them?

There are no two ways about it the best way to select a conveyancing lawyer is to seek referrals from friends or relatives who have used the firm you're considering.

Harry (my fiance) and I may need to rent out our Fitzrovia ground floor flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a Fitzrovia conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Fitzrovia do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see 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 permission.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without success. Can a leaseholder make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Fitzrovia conveyancing firm to assist?

Where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the LVT to determine the amount due.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Fitzrovia flat is 20 Avonwick Road in July 2013. The Tribunal was dealing with an application under Section 26 of the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 for a determination of the freehold value of the property. It was concluded that the price to be paid was Fifteen Thousand Nine Hundred and Seventy (£15,970) divided as to £8,200 for Flat 20 and £7,770 for Flat 20A This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 73.26 years.

Is it true that a Fitzrovia conveyancing firm has court proceedings brought against them by a client for failing to conduct the right conveyancing investigations?

Our attention has not be brought to such a Fitzrovia conveyancing matter but according to a recent report, clients purchasing a home elsewhere in England successfully sued their conveyancer as a consequence of development permission to build a wind farm not being picked up in conveyancing searches.

Where you are buying in Fitzrovia It is essential that your solicitor carry out all Fitzrovia conveyancing searches required to ensure you have accurate and current information before buying a home in Fitzrovia.
