Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hendon

I am only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Hendon and my mum and dad have transferred the 10% deposit to my lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my lawyer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?

Your solicitor is obliged to clarify with mortgage company to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only notify this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Are the Hendon conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Skipton conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Skipton?

Hendon conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Skipton directly.

My wife and I have a renovated Georgian house in Hendon. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Skipton Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. Is it worth asking Skipton Building Society to clarify?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Hendon and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Hendon I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Hendon for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

I would like to sublet my leasehold apartment in Hendon. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?

A small minority of properties in Hendon do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without getting anywhere. Can I make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Hendon conveyancing firm to represent me?

Most certainly. We are happy to put you in touch with a Hendon conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Hendon premises is First Floor Flat 61 Wilberforce Road in March 2014. The premium payable was £10,130 and the case was remitted back to the Willesden County Court to effect the Vesting Order (Claim No 3W103100). This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired term was 71 years.

For various reasons I am not able to get to my Hendon conveyancing solicitors office to execute documents for conveyancing in Hendon – will this be an issue?

No. Hendon conveyancing solicitors can conduct home moves for clients throughout the rest of the country. It is not necessary for you to be able to visit a Hendon conveyancers office. They can handle all communications remotely from their Hendon premises.
