Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Haggerston

I opted for a Haggerston based firm for my conveyancing in Haggerston today. After carefully reading the Ts and Cs I seewe are responsible for fees even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and choose an on-line lawyer who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Haggerston?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be higher to counteract those transactions that abort. Also remember that such promotions generally do not cover outlay by way of example Haggerston conveyancing search expenses.

I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years built) in Haggerston. 95% of the appartments have already been occupied. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches as part of conveyancing in Haggerston?

You are opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in not carrying out Haggerston conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would strongly advise in the strongest possible terms that you have them. Where time pressures and price are top of your concerns you should consider with your lawyer about the possibility of search insurance

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the TSB Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Haggerston?

First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

Should our conveyancer be making enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Haggerston.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers conducting conveyancing in Haggerston. There are those who purchase a house in Haggerston, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or by their lawyers which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Haggerston. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the seller to discover if the premises has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the seller, then a buyer may commence a compensation claim resulting from an incorrect answer. A buyer’s lawyers should also order an environmental report. This will indicate if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be carried out.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Haggerston benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not inform my solicitor about this extras as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Expecting to exchange soon on a ground floor flat in Haggerston. Conveyancing solicitors assured me that they are sending me a report tomorrow. What should I be looking out for?

The report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Haggerston should include some of the following:

    What options are open to you if another tenant in the building is in violation of a provision in their lease? The physical ownership of the property. This will be the flat itself but could also incorporate a roof space or cellar if relevant. Whether the landlord has obligations to ensure rights of quiet enjoyment over your premises and do you know what it means in practice? Changes to the flat You should know whether the lease allows you to alter or improve anything in the premises- you should be made aware as to whether any restrictions relates to all alterations or limited to structural alteration, and whether consent is mandated necessary
For a comprehensive list of information to be included in your report on your leasehold property in Haggerston please enquire of your conveyancer in advance of your conveyancing in Haggerston.

Having spent months of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Haggerston. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a absentee landlord or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to assess the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Haggerston premises is 137 & 139 Haberdasher Street in December 2013. The Tribunal determines in accordance with section 48 and Schedule 13 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the extended lease for each Property should be £12,350.00. This case was in relation to 2 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 72.39 years.
