My wife and I are selling our house in Forest Gate and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Forest Gate lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Forest Gate. We have lived in Forest Gate for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to 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)
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Forest Gate?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Forest Gate. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I am buying a new build flat in Forest Gate. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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 selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Forest Gate
The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. 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. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply a car parking plan.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Forest Gate is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Forest Gate are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Forest Gate you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Forest Gate may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Forest Gate. Before diving in I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Forest Gate - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can one apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Forest Gate conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?
Most definitely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Forest Gate conveyancing firm who can help.
