Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North Finchley

I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for delay in North Finchley conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in North Finchley.

Have completed on a a semi-detached house in North Finchley , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My North Finchley conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure that my purchase is registered.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in North Finchley registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. As of today roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser is living at the property thus 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I am purchasing a new build house in North Finchley with a mortgage from TSB. The sellers would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it may put at risk my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in North Finchley I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in North Finchley in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

What are your top tips when it comes to appointing a North Finchley conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a North Finchley conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We advise that you talk with several firms including non North Finchley conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be of use:

    If the firm is not ALEP accredited then what is the reason? Can they put you in touch with clients in North Finchley who can give a testimonial?

Despite our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in seeking a lease extension in North Finchley. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Where there is a missing landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to arrive at the premium.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a North Finchley flat is Flat 2 2 Netherfield Road in April 2010. The Tribunale held that premium payable for a 90 year extension to the existing Lease should be £7,705. This case was in relation to 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 76 years.

My lawyers in North Finchley have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the bank. Is it case that being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?

Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the bank Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the lender directly.
