Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Goodmayes

I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and have to be out of my let out property in Goodmayes by 24/11/2022. Conveyancing for my house purchase has just started. Can I complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to move into short term accommodation?

Generally one should not provide notice for your lease until your lawyer suggests that you should. If you have not previously done so, update to your conveyancer and urge them to they chase the owners side, try to a target completion date that all parties will work to achieve

Do I have to attend the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Goodmayes so that I can attend their offices if required.

These days approved lawyers for mortgage companies conduct the vast majority of work through Royal Mail, e-mail or over phone calls. This enables them to carry out the legal work for your home move regardless of where you live in England or Wales. Nevertheless you can check if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if just in case this is required.

I am assisting my niece sell her property in Goodmayes. Will the conveyancer commission the energy assessment or should I organise this?

After the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates was left as a compulsory part of selling a house. An energy assessment should be to hand prior to the property being advertised. This is not something that law firms ordinarily arrange. If you are instructing a Goodmayes conveyancing lawyer they may be able to arrange energy assessments due to their contacts with long established Goodmayes assessors

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Goodmayes off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Co-operative. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.

It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Goodmayes building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Goodmayes conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Your conveyancer must follow the CML Handbook section two provisions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Goodmayes completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Goodmayes differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Goodmayes contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Goodmayes usually buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Goodmayes or who has acted in the same development.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £200,000 apartment in Goodmayes next week. The freeholder has quoted £324 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Goodmayes?

Goodmayes conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes typically results in fees being invoiced by landlords agents :

    Answering conveyancing due diligence enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Goodmayes Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Goodmayes leasehold property is £350. For Goodmayes conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to provide the information.

I own a garden flat in Goodmayes. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the amount due for a lease extension?

if there is a absentee freeholder or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Goodmayes residence is 49 Aldborough Road South in July 2012. The Tribunal decided that the premium payable for the grant of the new lease was £13,925 This case affected 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 61.36 years.
