Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Haggerston

Would the conveyancing lawyers that you recommend carry out right to buy conveyancing in Haggerston?

We do have a number of conveyancing conveyancers carrying out right to buy conveyancing work Do get in touch with us in order to get a conveyancing quote.

I am the only recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Haggerston. The Haggerston property was put into my name in May. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in May. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement principally exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Skipton are being pedantic. The Haggerston solicitor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Skipton are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Skipton have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Skipton have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Skipton may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Haggerston solicitor - who is on the Principality conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Haggerston surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I was advised by numerous property agents in Haggerston to locate a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your site rather than another?

We refuse to offer any financial incentive for directing people our way. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the property agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we instruct their recommended solicitors as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Haggerston

It is highly unlikely the owners are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Contact the sellers directly and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Haggerston conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.

I own a leasehold house in Haggerston. Conveyancing and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1994. The conveyancing solicitor in Haggerston who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?

The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder. You do not need to instruct a Haggerston conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without success. Can one apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Haggerston conveyancing firm to help?

Absolutely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Haggerston conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Haggerston property 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 unexpired residue of the current lease was 72.39 years.

What is the reason for new build conveyancing in Haggerston being more expensive?

Acquiring a brand new premises is completely different from the normal house purchase conveyancing in Haggerston. Firstly housebuilders usually require contracts to exchange inside a short timeframe, the result being a a great deal of pressure on your property lawyer to ensure everything is in order. Furthermore new build conveyancing frequently involve the checking of adoption of highways, drains, planning considerations, building warranties or architects certificates. Lenders requirements are also more detailed. Due to the complex nature of the process for these types of properties, the conveyancing new build fees are higher than normal.
