Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Norbiton

My Conveyancer in Norbiton is not listed on the Leeds Building Society Approved Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my prefered solicitor even though they are not on the Leeds Building Society list of approved lawyers?

The limited options open to you here include:

  1. Carry on with your existing Norbiton lawyers but Leeds Building Society will need to use a lawyer on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the total conveyancing charges as well as cause frustration.
  2. Find a new lawyer to act in the purchase, remembering to check they are Convince your lawyer to do everything within their powers to join the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel

My partner and I are downsizing from our home in Norbiton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Norbiton conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Norbiton. Having lived in Norbiton for three years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Norbiton concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 asset 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.

About to purchase a new build apartment in Norbiton. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Norbiton

    Please supply a car parking plan. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared.

I’m about to sell my basement apartment in Norbiton. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just received a yearly service charge demand – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is clear the maintenance contribution as normal as all ground rent and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser 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 any joy. Can a leaseholder make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Norbiton conveyancing firm to assist?

Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a Norbiton conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Norbiton flat is Flat D 15 Claremont Gardens in September 2013. TheTribunal determined in accordance with section48 and Schedule13 of the Leasehold Reform,Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the extended lease should be fourteen thousand one hundred and eighty seven pounds (£14,187.00) This case was in relation to 1 flat.

My partner and I soon to exchange buying a property in Norbiton but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have negotiated compensation from the current proprietors of five thousand pounds taking the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process but the lender will not agree to this. Should they have been informed?

Any conveyancer being on a lender conveyancing panel is obliged to advise the mortgage company of any amendments to the sale amount. In the event that you were to refuse your lawyer to disclose the price change to your lender then they would have no choice but to discontinue representing you and the lender.
