Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Marylebone

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the Barclays Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Marylebone?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

Is it necessary to take out insurance to cover chancel repairs when buying a residence in Marylebone?

Unless a prior acquisition of the premises took place after 12 October 2013 you could expect conveyancing practitioners carrying out conveyancing in Marylebone to remain encouraging a chancel search and or chancel repair liability policy.

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Marylebone completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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.

How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial property in Marylebone and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act provides a safeguard to business lessees, giving them the a statutory right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing practices who use the act to your advantage and help with commercial conveyancing in Marylebone

I am looking at a two apartments in Marylebone both have approximately 50 years unexpired on the lease term. Will this present a problem?

There are plenty of short leases in Marylebone. The lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As a lease shortens the value of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more costly to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is advisable to extend the lease term. More often than not it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.

After years of correspondence we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Marylebone. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a Marylebone conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Marylebone flat is Flats 37 & 39 88/90 Portland Place in December 2010. The Tribunal determined that the premium payable for the lease extensions in respect of these two flats is as follows:- For Flat 37, the sum of £385,230.00 For Flat 39, the sum of £436,780.00 This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired term was 24.02 years.

I have just discovered that one of the partners of the firm undertaking the purchase conveyancing in Marylebone is an uncle of the owners that we are buying from. Is this permitted?

On the basis that no conflict arises this is allowable. Where you are needing mortgage finance then the mortgage company may have a say as many lenders have specific requirements on this. For example for Virgin as of 21/2/2024, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

No and you must tell us immediately.
