Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kingston Vale

Can the conveyancing practitioners identified via your search tool handle auction conveyancing in Kingston Vale?

There are a number of auction practitioners we can connect you with those who can conduct auction conveyancing. Kingston Vale is one of hundreds of locations in which our lawyers are based.

I am the sole beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Kingston Vale. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in June. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be caught by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this requirement is chiefly there to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of property.

is it true that all Kingston Vale solicitor firms on the Barclays conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Barclays approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be governed by the CLC.

About to purchase apartment in Kingston Vale. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Kingston Vale lawyer is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.

It has been four months since my purchase conveyancing in Kingston Vale concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Kingston Vale in advance of instructing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may refuse to grant a mortgage on this type of house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can look into this further via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Kingston Vale. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Last February I purchased a leasehold flat in Kingston Vale. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure 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).

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

Absolutely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Kingston Vale conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Kingston Vale property is 19 St. Margarets Crescent in August 2010. the tribunal was of the view that the premium to be paid by the leaseholder for the freehold reversion was £51,983.00 This case related to 3 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 66.25 years.

I am searching for Kingston Vale conveyancing quotes online. Can I be confident that all the Kingston Vale practices that are identified on your website are on the lender conveyancing panel?

The law firms listed on our site have advised us that they are on the bank panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the bank panel. To date we have not been informed by either a lender or a member of the public that the data about a specific Kingston Vale conveyancing solicitor being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel is incorrect.
