Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hainault

Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Hainault?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Hainault your solicitor will ask you to provide them with monies to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. If any deposit is payable against the total price then this will be required immediately ahead of exchange of contracts. The final balance that is needed should be transferred shortly before completion.

Various online forums that I have come across warn that are the number one cause of stalling in Hainault house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Hainault.

I am buying my first flat in Hainault benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about this deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Hainault is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?

Flying freeholds in Hainault are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hainault you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hainault may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

Taking into account that I will soon part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a property in Hainault I wish to talk to a conveyancer about myconveyancing prior to instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the conveyancer due to be doing your property ownership legalities in Hainault.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a matter reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Hainault should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Hainault. Conveyancing and HSBC Bank mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing solicitor in Hainault who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?

The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Hainault conveyancing solicitor to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

We have reached the end of our tether in seeking a lease extension in Hainault. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to judgment on the sum to be paid.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Hainault flat is 201 & 201a St. Barnabas Road in October 2013. The Tribunal decided that the price to be paid by the Applicants for the freehold interest is £20,071. This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired term was 69.26 years.
