My fiance and I are purchasing a maisonette in Forestdale. My Solicitor is not on the mortgage company solicitor panel. Is it possible for me to appoint my Forestdale conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the bank list of approved lawyers?
Your options include
- Complete the purchase with your existing Forestdale solicitor but your bank will need to instruct a conveyancing practitioner on their approved panel. The net result is additional charges and likely frustration.
- Get a fresh solicitor to conduct the conveyancing, ensuring that they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
- Convince your conveyancer to do everything within their powers to get listed on the bank’s conveyancing panel

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Forestdale
The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. 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. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
I’m about to sell my ground floor apartment in Forestdale. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?
It best that you clear the invoice as usual because all rents and service invoices will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without any joy. Can I apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Forestdale conveyancing firm to assist?
if there is a missing landlord or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the LVT to determine the amount due.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Forestdale residence is The Woodlands 95 Purley Park Road in April 2009. The Tribunals own valuation produced the figure of £37,912. This case was in relation to 6 flats. The unexpired term was 78.32 years.
