Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Lambeth

I am obtaining a mortgage with Nat West. My intention is to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer in Lambeth. Does the Nat West Solicitor panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?

The Nat West conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.

My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Lambeth. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Could you help?

You should e-mail the conveyancer and enquire whether they can act for the lender. Alternatively you can call Barclays who may be able to assist.

My partner and I are downsizing from our property in Lambeth and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Lambeth. We have lived in Lambeth for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Lambeth. Conveyancing is daunting 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 conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Lambeth

    Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Please supply a car parking plan. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

I'm remortgaging my primary property to a buy to let loan with HSBC Bank and I will use the ballance of the raised equity as a deposit on another property. The neighborhood we are interested in is Lambeth. Will your conveyancers be able to act for both sets of mortgage companies and link together the transactions?

Do use our search tool on this page to ensure that the conveyancers are on the relevant lender panels. On the basis that they are the conveyancer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two conveyancing matters but you should talk with you conveyancer and make apparent your expectations and requirements.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to choosing a Lambeth conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

When appointing a conveyancer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Lambeth conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you talk with several firms including non Lambeth conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be useful:

    What are the legal fees for lease extension work? If they are not ALEP accredited then why not?

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such issues? Can you recommend a Lambeth conveyancing firm to help?

in cases where there is a absentee landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to make a decision on the price.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Lambeth flat is Flats 12A & 19, Evelyn Mansions Carlisle Place in June 2009. The Tribunal held that the price to be paid for the new lease of Flat 12A is £168,824, For the other flat the price was set at £169,110 This case related to 2 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 56 years.
