We selected a local lawyer for my conveyancing in Motspur Park last week. Going through the Terms and Conditions it is apparent thatwe are responsible for costs even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I go with them or instruct a web based conveyancing brokerage offering no completion no cost conveyancing in Motspur Park?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to counteract those transactions that do not proceed. Please beware that such arrangements rarely cover disbursements such as Motspur Park conveyancing search charges.
It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Motspur Park concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 residence 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.

The benefit of a high street Motspur Park conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute documents, hand in your ID and pester them if necessary. Having local Motspur Park know how is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust instructed your friend and they were impressed that must trump using an unfamiliar Motspur Park conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Motspur Park. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Motspur Park - 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.
After months of dialogue we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Motspur Park. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
in cases where there is a missing freeholder or where there is disagreement 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 First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to judgment on the amount due.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Motspur Park premises is 33 The Maisonettes Alberta Avenue in June 2014. the Tribunal decided that the premium payable for the grant of a new lease be the sum of £20,680 (Twenty Thousand six hundred and eighty pounds). This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired term was 60.43 years.
Our solicitor in Motspur Park is asking me for personal identification documents stating that this forms part of his retainer as a solicitor on the lender Conveyancing panel. Is this right?
Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offence if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage, your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy the mortgage company. This is not specific to conveyancing in Motspur Park
