The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers specialising in conveyancing in Newham. Plenty of people will acquire a house in Newham, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their solicitors which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Newham. The standard property information forms given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard question of the owner to determine if the property has ever been flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer could commence a claim for damages stemming from an inaccurate response. The buyer’s lawyers may also commission an enviro report. This should reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be conducted.

Just bought a semi-detached house in Newham , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Newham conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check the land registry aspects are dealt with.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Newham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. At present in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the buyer has moved in to the premises so registration formalities is not usually an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm buying a new build house in Newham with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it would affect my loan with Accord Mortgages Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed flat in Newham. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently had a quarterly service charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as usual given that all ground rent and service invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such matters? Can you recommend a Newham conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?

Where there is a missing freeholder or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the LVT to judgment on the price.

The unexpired residue of the current lease was 69.77 years.
