The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Hampton Wick. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hampton Wick

    Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Hampton Wick is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Hampton Wick are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hampton Wick you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hampton Wick 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 premises.

I have been pointed in your direction by two or three local selling agents in Hampton Wick to choose a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your services over a competitor’s?

We refuse to offer any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

We're FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the estate agent informed us that the vendor will only move forward if we appoint their preferred solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family conveyancer used to conveyancing in Hampton Wick

We suspect that the owner is not behind this demand. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Hampton Wick conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will give their negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing figures set by head office.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £200,000 maisonette in Hampton Wick in just under a week. The managing agents has quoted £360 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and 3 years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a flat conveyance in Hampton Wick?

Hampton Wick conveyancing on leasehold flats typically results in administration charges invoiced by freeholders :

    Addressing conveyancing due diligence questions Where consent is required before sale in Hampton Wick Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Hampton Wick leasehold premises is £350. For Hampton Wick conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to provide answers.

Following months of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Hampton Wick. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Hampton Wick conveyancing firm who can help.
