The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers specialising in conveyancing in Norbiton. There are those who buy a property in Norbiton, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Norbiton registration formalities.

Historically registration occurs once the buyer is living at the property thus 'speed' is not usually top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Norbiton is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Norbiton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Norbiton may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

If all goes to plan we aim to complete the sale of our £125,000 maisonette in Norbiton in 5 days. The landlords agents has quoted £396 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Norbiton?

Norbiton conveyancing on leasehold apartments typically necessitates fees being invoiced by landlords agents :

    Answering pre-contract questions Where consent is required before sale in Norbiton Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Norbiton leasehold property is £350. For Norbiton conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to provide the information.
