We're in Leyton, First time buyers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is HSBC , and our lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not.

How does conveyancing in Leyton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Leyton contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Leyton usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Leyton or who has acted in the same development.

Last February I purchased a leasehold property in Leyton. Do I have any liability for 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. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part 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 I make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Leyton conveyancing firm to assist?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Leyton conveyancing firm who can help.

Am in the process of purchasing my first home in Leyton. Conveyancing lawyer has been instructed. The financial consultant suggested that a survey is not appropriate as the house was only built twenty two years ago.

You would be best advised to take a Home Buyer's Report. Given the premises is more than 10 years old the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could suffice. They will highlight any apparent problems and recommend additional investigation where relevant. If there are any indications of material issues get a comprehensive structural survey.
