Reasons to use our Hoxton conveyancing solicitors

  • 1 The mark of a good conveyancing solicitor in Hoxton is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by large estate agency chains) sometimes falls short of the level of professionalism you will expect.
  • 2 The companies shown on our web pages have a variation of conveyancing solicitors, legal executives and support staff handling over one hundred thousand cases each year.
  • 3 No matter what any alternative companies inform you it could be important to visit your conveyancer to execute documents. Too many 3rd parties are already involved in a house sale without having to include the postman into the pot.
  • 4 Excellent communication together with pure property experience are key benefits that you should look for when selecting conveyancing solicitors. Hoxton conveyancing can be made significantly more protracted due to lack of transparency between all the parties. The lawyers listed ensure that communication channels are open and act on arising issues and developments instantly.
  • 5 Cut price packages from online conveyancers might seem attractive. However, these firms are often located hundreds of kilometers away with limited understanding of the factors that affect property transactions in Hoxton

I'm purchasing a new build house in Hoxton with a loan from Alliance & Leicester . The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about this side-deal as it would impact my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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 bought a leasehold property in Hoxton. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

Despite our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in seeking a lease extension in Hoxton. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

if there is a absentee freeholder or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to judgment on the premium.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Hoxton property is 137 & 139 Haberdasher Street in December 2013. The Tribunal determines in accordance with section 48 and Schedule 13 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the extended lease for each Property should be £12,350.00. This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 72.39 years.

I am due to assess quotes for conveyancing in Hoxton from various conveyancer and decide on one. Do I ask them to sit tight until I I have my bid accepted on a apartment.

We suggest that you only get your solicitor to open a file and apply for searches after the sales memo has been sent by the estate agent particularly as Hoxton conveyancing searches are not cheap.
