A selection of lenders now use the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance.

Is it the case that all North Harrow solicitor firms on the TSB conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the TSB approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Many mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. North Harrow conveyancing solicitors are appointed. How long does it take for Co-operative to issue the offer to the lawyer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Co-operative conducted the valuation? Have you informed Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in North Harrow prior to instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to give a loan on a flying freehold home.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in North Harrow with the purpose of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in North Harrow can be avoided where you get in touch lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ solicitors.
  • You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but you should verify this via your solicitors. A buyer’s conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the lease term is under 75 years. It is therefore essential at an early stage that you consider whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the Management Company, you should ensure that you are holding the original share document. Arranging a new share certificate is often a time consuming process and frustrates many a North Harrow conveyancing deal. If a duplicate share certificate is required, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (where applicable) for this sooner rather than later. The majority of landlords or managing agents in North Harrow levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold premises. You or your lawyers should discover the fee that they propose to charge. The management information can be applied for as soon as you have a buyer, thus reducing delays. The average time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most common reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in North Harrow.

Despite our best efforts, we have been unsuccessful in trying to purchase the freehold in North Harrow. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

if there is a absentee landlord or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to assess the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a North Harrow premises is flat 93b Welldon Crescent in May 2009. The Tribunals valuation for a 90-year lease extension of this fat was £13,171 This case was in relation to 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 75.25 years.
