Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Heston

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Heston? What am I being asked for?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identification documents of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing business. The Terms and Conditions that you need to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. If you refuse to supply identification documents, your conveyancer can not take you on as a client.

My home in Heston is up for sale and I have a buyer. Will my property lawyer need to be required to be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Virgin Money 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 specifications fairly frequently currently.

The deeds to our home can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Heston 5 years ago no longer exist. Will I be able to sell the house?

Assuming the title is registered the details of your ownership will be held by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and order current copies of the property title for less than a fiver. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for a small fee.

I'm buying my first flat in Heston with a mortgage from Nationwide Building Society. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my lawyer about this side-deal as it may adversely affect my loan with Nationwide Building Society. 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 decided to have a survey carried out on a house in Heston ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold premises.

Completion is due on our sale of a £425,000 flat in Heston in 10 days. The management company has quoted £324 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Heston?

Heston conveyancing on leasehold apartments usually necessitates fees being levied by management companies :

    Addressing pre-exchange questions Where consent is required before sale in Heston Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Heston leasehold premises is £350. For Heston 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 the information.

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

Where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to assess the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Heston premises is Ground Floor Flat 91 Bath Road in May 2009. in a case where the freeholder could not be traced, the Brentford County Court ordered that the Lease be surrendered in return for the grant of a new lease of the Premises at a premium determined by the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal. The tribunal concluded that the price payable by the Applicant for the new lease of the premises be £15,900 This case affected 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 60.45 years.
