I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Santander. I would like to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Mill Hill. Does the Santander Solicitor panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?
The Santander conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
I purchased a freehold premises in Mill Hill but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Mill Hill and has limited impact for conveyancing in Mill Hill but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

My partner and I have arranged the release of further monies on our mortgage from Virgin Money as we wish to carry out a loft conversion to our house in Mill Hill. Are we obliged to select a bricks and mortar Mill Hill solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Virgin Money would not normally appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Virgin Money panel.
I am looking into buying my first house which is in Mill Hill and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Mill Hill. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Mill Hill area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Completion is due on the disposal of our £325,000 apartment in Mill Hill in six days. The landlords agents has quoted £336 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Mill Hill?
Mill Hill conveyancing on leasehold apartments more often than not necessitates the buyer’s solicitor submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to respond to such questions the majority will be content to assist. They may charge a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some situations it exceeds £800. The administration charge required by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of rights and obligations in respect of administration fees, without which the invoice is technically not due. In reality one has no option but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.
Following years of negotiations we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Mill Hill. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

Normally, the majority of problems disclosed in Mill Hill conveyancing search results can be handled prior to completion or title insurance could possibly be taken. You need to remember that regardless of the fact that you are purchasing the property and might be content to accept the search results, your lender may not, and ultimately the decision rests with them.
