What is the first thing I need to know concerning purchase conveyancing in London?

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in London or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for friction between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and even potentially the mortgage company. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in London is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the legal process whose role it is to protect your legal interests and to protect you.

There is a definite ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone must be blamed for the process being so protracted. You should always trust your lawyer above all other players in the home moving process.

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in London completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 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 property 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.

As co-executor for the estate of my father I am disposing of a residence in Neath but I am based in London. My conveyancer (based 260 miles awayrequires that I execute a stat dec prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in London to witness and place their company stamp on the document?

Technically speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are located in London

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in London. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in London - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

Having spent months of dialogue we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in London. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

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

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a London residence is 20 Avonwick Road in July 2013. The Tribunal was dealing with an application under Section 26 of the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 for a determination of the freehold value of the property. It was concluded that the price to be paid was Fifteen Thousand Nine Hundred and Seventy (£15,970) divided as to £8,200 for Flat 20 and £7,770 for Flat 20A This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 73.26 years.

I have been Googling for London online conveyancing estimates. Can I be sure that all the London practices that are listed on your site are on the bank conveyancing panel?

The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices on our directory have advised us that they are on the lender panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a bank or a member of the public that the data about a specific London conveyancing solicitor being on the lender conveyancing panel is not accurate.
