My apartment in Harlow is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Does the conveyancing practitioner need to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Barclays 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 currently.

As far as conveyancing in Harlow is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country.

As of today roughly three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the property therefore registration formalities is not usually top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Harlow?

Harlow conveyancing on leasehold apartments usually necessitates the buyer’s lawyer submitting enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer such questions the majority will be willing to do so. They may invoice a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it exceeds £800. The administration charge invoiced by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration fees, without which the invoice is technically not due. Reality however dictates that one has little choice but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to sell the property.

Harlow Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Questions you should consider before buying

    The best form of lease structure is if the freehold interest is owned by the leaseholders. In this situation the leaseholders benefit from control and even though a managing agent is usually retained where the building is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves. If a Harlow lease has fewer than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the value of the apartment. Check with your lender that they are willing to lend given the lease term. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will almost definitely have to extend the lease at some point and it is worth discovering how much this will be. Remember, in most cases you will be be obliged to have been the owner of the property for 24 months before you are entitled to exercise a lease extension. Does the lease have in excess of 82 years left?
