Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kew

Last March we completed a house move in Kew. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been carried out for conveyancing in Kew?

It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Kew. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a questionnaire known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information provided is misleading, you could possibly take legal action against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Kew.

I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would much rather instruct a Kew based conveyancing firm?

You should check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel conveyancers should you take up the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the mortgage company and explore if they offer you a cash alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Kew.

is it true that all Kew solicitor firms on the HSBC conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the SRA. The majority of lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be governed by the CLC.

We had selected solicitors located in Kew on the Leeds Building Society solicitor panel. They have just billed me an additional fee for dealing with the Leeds Building Society mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Leeds Building Society?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor can levy a fee for this. This fee is not set by Leeds Building Society but by your Kew property lawyer. Some firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.

Yorkshire BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a flat in Kew has been agreed to, what happens next?

The estate agent will need to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancers are on the bank’s approved list). Contact Yorkshire BS or your broker and finalise any relevant documentation. Yorkshire BS will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to schedule a slot for the valuation to happen. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days to get a mortgage offer. Yorkshire BS will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners.

I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agency in Kew where we have experienced a few leasehold sales derailed due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given conflicting advice from local Kew conveyancing solicitors. Please can you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or at the same time as completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such matters? Can you recommend a Kew conveyancing firm to represent me?

Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a Kew conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Kew residence is Flat 1 30 Ennismore Avenue in September 2010. the Tribunal adopted and arrived at a premium for the lease extension of £29, 900 This case was in relation to 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 68.34 years.
