Me and my partner are buying a apartment in Hackney. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a solicitor? On completion day we have to send money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

I am aiming to move home in August. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Hackney. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across your page.

We previously chose conveyancers based in Hackney on the Nottingham solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental sum for the legal aspects of the Nottingham mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Nottingham?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer may charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Nottingham but by your Hackney property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Nottingham panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.

The deeds to my house are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Hackney 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?

Assuming the title is registered the details of your ownership will be retained by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is easy to conduct a search at the Land Registry, identify your property and order up to date copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for £20 inclusive of VAT.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for some conveyancing in Hackney. I've stumble upon a web site which appears to be the perfect solution If there is a chance to get all formalities completed via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

If all goes to plan we aim to complete the sale of our £150,000 flat in Hackney in just under a week. The management company has quoted £348 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a leasehold conveyance in Hackney?

For most leasehold sales in Hackney conveyancing will involve, questions about the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Completing pre-contract questions Where consent is required before sale in Hackney Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Hackney leasehold premises is £350. For Hackney 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 supply answers.

I am the leaseholder of a a ground floor purpose built flat in Hackney. Given that I can not reach agreement with the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the sum due for a lease extension?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Hackney conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Hackney flat is 150 Amhurst Road in December 2013. The tribunal concluded that the premium to be paid by the applicant for the enfranchisement of the subject property was £43,500. This case related to 4 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 90 (or thereabouts).

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor apartment in Hackney.Conveyancing is yet to be initiated however I have recently received a quarterly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the maintenance contribution as you normally would as all ground rent and service charges should be apportionedon completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until 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
