Having sold my house in Fitzrovia last December yet the purchaser is texting me complaining that her lawyer needs to hear from mylawyer. What should have happened following completion?

Following your house sale your solicitor is obliged to send the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. If applicable, your conveyancer should also evidence that the mortgage has been repaid to the purchasers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion requirements unique to conveyancing in Fitzrovia.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Principality. Fitzrovia conveyancing practitioners were instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Principality?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Principality conducted the valuation? Have you advised Principality as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Principality conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Fitzrovia. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

Our offer on a detached house in Fitzrovia has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have put an offer on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Fitzrovia. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with UBS going?

It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Fitzrovia conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. As to the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many home buyers would apply for a home loan with UBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to press on with searches.

Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal planned roadworks that could impact a commercial land in Fitzrovia?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Fitzrovia will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers invest in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Fitzrovia.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Fitzrovia. Conveyancing is daunting 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 legal work.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Fitzrovia

    If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. 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. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.
