Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Highbury

There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Highbury but how do I know who's good?

It would be unwise to be swayed by the cheapest Highbury conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Does a directory service exist listing TSB panel solicitors in Highbury on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings visible on the web. Where you are looking for a Highbury lawyer on the TSB please make the most of our tool.

We were going to get a OIP from Co-operative this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Highbury solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Highbury solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.

I acquired my flat on 5 November and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Highbury expressed confidence that it will be concluded in less than a month. Are titles in Highbury particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Highbury registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration takes place after the buyer is living at the property thus 'speed' is not always primary concern yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Highbury I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Highbury for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

Hoping to buy a property located in Highbury and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Highbury. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Highbury area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Highbury. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for my conveyancing in Highbury. I've discover a web site which looks to be the perfect offering If there is a chance to get all this stuff completed via web that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 62 years left on my lease in Highbury. I now wish to get lease extension but my landlord is missing. What are my options?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to find the freeholder. For most situations a specialist would be helpful to conduct investigations and prepare a report which can be used as evidence that the freeholder can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Highbury.

Despite our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in seeking a lease extension in Highbury. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

if there is a missing freeholder or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Highbury flat is Lower Flat 16A Beatty Road in September 2012. The premium payable was £13,577. The terms of the lease has been agreed between the Applicants and the First Respondent and the Tribunal did not seek to disturb that agreement. This case was in relation to 1 flat.
