    The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan.

I am using a search engine for the words cheap conveyancing in Hither Green it brings up many solicitorsin the vicinity. How do I determine which is the suitable property lawyer for my move?

If all goes to plan we aim to complete the sale of our £175,000 garden flat in Hither Green next Monday. The freeholder has quoted £420 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Hither Green?

Hither Green conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes often necessitates the buyer’s lawyer submitting enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address these enquiries most will be content to assist. They may levy a reasonable administration fee for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some cases it exceeds £800. The management information fee required by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the invoice is technically not due. Reality however dictates that one has little choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.

Despite our best efforts, we have been unsuccessful in negotiating a lease extension in Hither Green. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Hither Green conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Hither Green premises is 18 Handen Road in April 2013. On 26 October 2012 District Judge Zimmels sitting at the Lambeth County Court made a Vesting Order that the Applicants be granted the right to acquire the freehold upon such terms and at such price determined by the LVT. The Tribunal arrived a figure of £39,535 as a valuation for the enfranchisement. This case affected 3 flats. The unexpired term was 69.05 years.

I pay a maintenance fee for my property in Hither Green. Due to redundancy and other issues I fell behind with payments. I negotiated a settlement schedule but there remains three grand currently outstanding.

I am under pressure to sell and I am worried this could hold me back if I have to pay off the arrears in advance. Do I have to settle before - is this possible?

It would be wise to check with the property lawyer handling your Hither Green conveyancing but one option may be to arrange for the debt to be transferred to the buyers. The final price payable would be adjusted to reflect the amount of debt they take on. They would then pay the fees once they are the owners.
