Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Northolt

When it comes to lenders such as Yorkshire BS, do Northolt solicitors incur a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are unaware of any bank fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

We expect to receive a DIP from TSB this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do TSB recommend any Northolt solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Northolt solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the TSB conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and TSB through the process.

I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Northolt. My mortgage broker suggested a conveyancer. I paid an on account payment of £200. A few days later, the property lawyer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the UBS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the UBS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I need some fast conveyancing in Northolt as I am under pressure to exchange contracts in less than 3 weeks. Luckily I do not require a mortgage. Is it possible to decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

If.Given you are not getting a home loan you are at liberty not to have searches carried out although no conveyancer would recommend that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Northolt the following are examples of issues that can appear and adversely affect market value: Enforcement Actions, Overdue Charges, Outstanding Grants, Railway Schemes,...

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Northolt I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Northolt in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

What does commercial conveyancing in Northolt cover?

Non domestic conveyancing in Northolt incorporates a broad array of guidance, provided by regulated solicitors, relating to business property. By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the transfer of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of leases.

Am I best advised to appoint a Northolt conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? An old friend can handle the legal formalities but his firm is located a couple of hundredkilometers drive away.

The benefit of a local Northolt conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Northolt know how is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and on the whole were happy that must surpass using an unknown Northolt conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.

We expect to complete the sale of our £225,000 flat in Northolt in seven days. The management company has quoted £384 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Northolt?

Northolt conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes nine out of ten times necessitates administration charges levied by managing agents :

    Answering conveyancing due diligence enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Northolt Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Northolt leasehold property is £350. For Northolt 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 obliged to supply the information.

Having spent years of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Northolt. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the price.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Northolt flat is GFF 1 Holyrood Avenue in May 2014. The Tenant wished to acquire a new (extended) lease and applied to the Willesden County Court who granted a vesting order on 20* March2013. The Tribunal decied that the premium to be paid was £9,062 This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired term was 79 years.
