Do commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that may affect a commercial property in Greenwich?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Greenwich will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers expend in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Greenwich. The report provides definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Greenwich.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Greenwich it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

Just bought a terraced house in Greenwich , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Greenwich conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my purchase is recorded.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Greenwich registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any interested parties. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration takes place after the purchaser is living at the property therefore registration formalities is not always an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

How does conveyancing in Greenwich differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Greenwich come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Greenwich 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 used to new build conveyancing in Greenwich or who has acted in the same development.

I have been recommended by a few estate agents in Greenwich to get a quote from a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your lawyers over and above a competitor’s?

We don’t offer any financial incentive for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

One month into a sale of a flat in Greenwich. Conveyancing solicitors are doing their job but we are being charged a fortune from the landlord. To date we have paid £295.50 for a leasehold management pack and then a further £118 for supplemental questions raised by the purchaser's solicitor.

You will not have control over the level of the charges for this information however the typical costs for the information for Greenwich leasehold property is £360. For Greenwich conveyancing transactions it is usual for the seller to pay for these costs. The freeholder or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions although many will agree to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Regretfully there is no legislation that mandates fixed charges for administrative tasks. Nor is there any prescriptive time frame by which they are required to supply answers.
