Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harlington

As I am unsure how the conveyancing process works what is the most important advice you can impart about purchase conveyancing in Harlington?

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Harlington or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for friction between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, property agent and sometimes the bank. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Harlington an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the transaction whose interest is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.

My flat in Harlington is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Does the solicitor have to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.

I note that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums.

How does conveyancing in Harlington differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Harlington approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Harlington typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Harlington or who has acted in the same development.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business property in Harlington and how can you help?

The 1954 Act affords protection to business lessees, granting the dueness to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Harlington is one of the many locations in which our lawyers are based

Last April I purchased a leasehold property in Harlington. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such matters? Can you recommend a Harlington conveyancing firm to assist?

You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Harlington conveyancing firm who can help.
