How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Hampton and how can you help?

The 1954 Act provides security of tenure to commercial leaseholders, giving them the dueness to apply to court for a new lease and continue in occupation at the end of the lease term.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Hampton from the point of view of speeding up the sale process?

  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Hampton can be reduced if you instruct lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ lawyers.
  • If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should ensure that you hold the original share document. Obtaining a re-issued share certificate can be a time consuming process and delays many a Hampton conveyancing deal. Where a new share certificate is required, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (where relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity. You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be wise to double-check by asking your solicitors. A buyer’s conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to where the remaining number of years is under 80 years. It is therefore essential at an as soon as possible that you consider whether the lease term for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale. Some Hampton leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, it would be prudent to notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their solicitors.

Having spent months of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Hampton. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

if there is a absentee landlord or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to decide the price.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Hampton premises is 147 Redford Close in June 2012. The Tribunal determined the lease extension premium to be at £4,200 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 82.93 years.

We are hoping to buy a repression house in Hampton and the vendor would like to complete within a week. Can a conveyancing practitioner meet that timeframe? Am I best advised to use a local Hampton firm or an online conveyancer that advertises to offer speedy conveyancing?

Visit your Hampton shopping parade. Go in to a couple of companies and ask to talk to a conveyancing solicitor for a quote. Discuss your needs and try and obtain a commitment on speed. Choose the firm that appears most efficient. Make sure to use a property lawyer on the panel of solicitors acceptable to your lender.
