I am purchasing a property mortgage free in Motspur Park. I have been living for the last twelve years in Motspur Park. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I know the road and vicinity intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a home loan, then all but one or two of the Motspur Park conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to do this. One thing to take into account; if you are intend to sell the house at a future date, it will be of interest to your prospective buyer what the searches determine. Sometimes premises with day to day issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Motspur Park should be able to give you some constructive advice here.
I used Action Conveyancing a few years ago for my conveyancing in Motspur Park. Now, I need my files however the law firm has closed. What do I do?

I'm buying a new build house in Motspur Park benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about this side-deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Motspur Park. Conveyancing and Lloyds TSB Bank mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Motspur Park who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?
First contact HMLR to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Motspur Park conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
Having spent years of dialogue we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Motspur Park. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
in cases where there is a missing landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the LVT to assess the price payable.
An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Motspur Park residence 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 was in relation to 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 60.43 years.
