Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Norbury

My partner and I are intent on buying property in Norbury. My property lawyer is not listed on the bank approved list. Is it possible for me to retain my Norbury conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the lender approved list?

One must appoint a solicitor to complete the legal work required when you require a loan to buy your property. The conveyancing practitioner will carry out all the essential legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is in place. One may select a Norbury conveyancing practitioner of your choice. However, where the conveyancer selected is not on the mortgage company conveyancing panel supplemental charges will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so if your lawyer has not in the past applied for membership they can do so.

Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Norbury is more expensive?

Norbury leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

How does conveyancing in Norbury differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Norbury contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Norbury tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Norbury or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Norbury is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Norbury are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Norbury you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Norbury 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 premises.

Last December I purchased a leasehold property in Norbury. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

Following months of dialogue we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Norbury. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

Absolutely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Norbury conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Norbury property is Flat 12, Newlands Court Streatham Common North in May 2012. the decision of the Tribunal was that the premium payable by the Applicants to the Respondent for the new lease of the Premises be £70,140. This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 23.25 years.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Norbury agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have submitted an offer on a flat, although it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing lawyer in Norbury. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Nottingham going with Nottingham?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Norbury conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the Nottingham approved list. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of home buyers will apply for a home loan with Nottingham and pay for the survey and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with the conveyancing in Norbury.
