Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kentish Town

Can I use your services to recommend a Conveyancing solicitor in Kentish Town even where I’m not buying or selling a house, for instance if I wish to acquire a shop in Kentish Town with a loan from TSB?

The service is mainly utilised to help choose residential conveyancing solicitors in Kentish Town but we have listed at the bottom of this page a few Kentish Town commercial conveyancing firms. You will need to make contact with the firm directly to establish if they can also act for TSB

The Kentish Town conveyancing firm that just started acting on my house acquisition in Kentish Town have without warning closed. I chose them because I had to have a lawyer on the Santander conveyancing panel and my previous Kentish Town lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What should be my next steps?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Santander conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to assist.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Kentish Town. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Kentish Town

    The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? 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.

We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, yet the estate agent advised that the seller will only move forward if we use their recommended conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Kentish Town

It is highly unlikely the sellers are driving this. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Kentish Town conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will provide the estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by corporate headquarters.

Completion is due on our sale of a £250,000 garden flat in Kentish Town next week. The managing agents has quoted £360 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Kentish Town?

Kentish Town conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes often requires the purchaser’s solicitor sending questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to such questions most will be willing to do so. They are entitled to levy a reasonable administration fee for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some cases it is above £800. The administration charge invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. In reality one has no choice but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to complete the sale of your home.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can I make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Kentish Town conveyancing firm to assist?

Where there is a missing freeholder or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to decide the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Kentish Town flat is Flat 2 27 Mackeson Road in December 2012. The Tribunal assessed the value of the lease extension premium at £35,435 and rounded the figure to £35,500 This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 64.77 years.
