Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harold Park

My wife and I are intent on selling our property in Harold Park and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Harold Park. We have lived in Harold Park for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I have todayfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Harold Park for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest way to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Harold Park conveyancing specialists.

I am buying a new build house in Harold Park with a loan from Aldermore. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about the extras as it would jeopardize my mortgage with Aldermore. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Harold Park is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

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

I have been pointed in your direction by numerous selling agents in Harold Park to find a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your services rather than a competitor’s?

We don’t make any commission for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

    If they are not ALEP accredited then what is the reason?

Having spent years of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Harold Park. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a Harold Park conveyancing firm who can help.
