Various online forums that I have frequented warn that are a common cause of obstruction in Lee house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the most frequent causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Lee.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house can not be found. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Lee 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my options?

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your ownership will be held by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your property and secure up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for a small fee.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Lee I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Lee for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

My uncle has suggested that I appoint his conveyancers in Lee. Should I use them?

There are no two ways about it the best way to select a conveyancing practitioner is to have feedback from friends or family who have actually used the conveyancer that you are considering.

I own a leasehold house in Lee. Conveyancing and Leeds Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1994. The conveyancing practitioner in Lee who previously acted has now retired. Do I pay?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Lee conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I have had difficulty in negotiating a lease extension in Lee. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

if there is a missing landlord or if there is dispute 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 Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to decide the amount due.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Lee flat is 18 Handen Road in April 2013. On 26 October 2012 District Judge Zimmels sitting at the Lambeth County Court made a Vesting Order that the Applicants be granted the right to acquire the freehold upon such terms and at such price determined by the LVT. The Tribunal arrived a figure of £39,535 as a valuation for the enfranchisement. This case affected 3 flats. The unexpired lease term was 69.05 years.
