I am assisting my sister sell her house in Kilburn. Does the conveyancing solicitor commission the energy performance certificate or do I organise this?

After the demise of HIPs, EPC’s was kept a compulsory part of selling a property. An energy assessment needs to be to hand before the property is placed on the market. This is not something that law firms normally arrange. If you are using a Kilburn conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with reputable Kilburn energy assessors

Can you point me to a directory of Bank of Ireland panel solicitors in Kilburn on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

No. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings visible over the internet. If you are looking for a Kilburn conveyancer on the Bank of Ireland please make the most of our tool.

Our sealed bid on a detached house in Kilburn has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Kilburn. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Kilburn conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with Lloyds and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their property lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Kilburn.

I require fast conveyancing in Kilburn as I am under pressure to complete inside 4 weeks. A mortgage is not required. Is it possible to decline from having conveyancing searches to save money and time?

As you are not getting a mortgage you have the choice not to do searches although no solicitor would recommend that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Kilburn the following are instances of issues that can arise and adversely impact future saleability: Refused Planning Applications, Overdue Fees, Overdue Grants, Road Schemes,...

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Kilburn prior to instructing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor advised that some lenders may not grant a mortgage on this type of property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different requirements from Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Kilburn. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Kilburn to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

Am I best advised to use a Kilburn conveyancing practitioner based in the area that I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can handle the conveyancing however his firm is located 300kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a high street Kilburn conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who used your friend and the majority were happy that should outweigh using an unknown Kilburn conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.

We expect to complete the sale of our £450,000 maisonette in Kilburn next Friday. The management company has quoted £336 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Kilburn?

For most leasehold sales in Kilburn conveyancing will involve, queries regarding the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Answering conveyancing due diligence questions Where consent is required before sale in Kilburn Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Kilburn leasehold premises is £350. For Kilburn conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to supply answers.

I am the leaseholder of a first floor flat in Kilburn. Given that I can not reach agreement with the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the premium payable for a lease extension?

Where there is a missing landlord or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to decide the price payable.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Kilburn property is 4 & 4A Charteris Road in June 2009. the Tribunal held that the price to be paid for the enfranchisement of 4/4a Charteris Road to be £15,510 for at 4and £15,694 for at 4a This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 70.02 years.
