We're first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the selling agent has warned us that the owners will only issue a contract if we use their chosen conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Hammersmith

It is highly unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct 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)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Hammersmith conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give their estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by senior management.

Notwithstanding our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in seeking a lease extension in Hammersmith. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Where there is a absentee landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the LVT to arrive at the sum to be paid.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Hammersmith premises is 19 Crisp Road in June 2009. Following a vesting order (Under section 26 of the Leasehold Reform,Housing and Urban Development Act 1993) The tribunal determined that the premium payable for the acquisition of the freehold was £33,756,apportioned as to£12,285 for the lower at and £21,471for the upper fat. This case was in relation to 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 68.32 years.

What are the frequently found deficiencies that you come across in leases for Hammersmith properties?

Leasehold conveyancing in Hammersmith is not unique. Most leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage

A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Nationwide Building Society, Bank of Scotland, and Godiva Mortgages Ltd all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, obliging the buyer to withdraw.

I would be grateful if you could explain what my options are where my Hammersmith conveyancing searches reveals adverse entries?

Ordinarily, the majority of adverse entries that arise in Hammersmith conveyancing search results can be addressed prior to completion or indemnity insurance can be taken. You need to note that although you are purchasing the premises and may be content to accept the search results, your building society or bank may not, and ultimately they have the final say.
