What happens if my solicitor is suspended from the Clydesdale Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Neasden?
First, 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.
Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that could affect a commercial site in Neasden?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Neasden will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Neasden. The report sets out definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Neasden.

Just acquired a terraced house in Neasden , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my proprietorship? My Neasden conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the registration is concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Neasden registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. At present in the region of three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not always top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Neasden before retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not issue a mortgage on such a premises.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Neasden.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Neasden. Before I get started I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Neasden - 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.
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such matters? Can you recommend a Neasden conveyancing firm to assist?
You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Neasden conveyancing firm who can help.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a Neasden flat is 12 Deacon Road in November 2012. the premium to be paid for the grant of the new lease was the sum of £31 ,635.00 (Thirty-One thousand and six hundred and thirty-five Pounds).

Thus the net sum of £28,744.80 was to be paid into court. This case affected 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 61.98 years.
