Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Norwood Green

I am considering refinancing my property in Norwood Green, does my lawyer need to be on the Skipton Solicitor panel?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Skipton will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

My friend recommended that if I am purchasing in Norwood Green I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Norwood Green conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of about 40 pages, listing and detailing significant information about Norwood Green around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Norwood Green Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Norwood Green.

There is not much else in Norwood Green suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass 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 consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Norwood Green with the aim of saving time on the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Norwood Green can be avoided if you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ representatives.
  • In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s approval? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Norwood Green leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or installing wooden flooring necessitate a licence from the Landlord consenting to such works. If you fail to have the consents in place do not contact the landlord without contacting your lawyer before hand. If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is put on the market. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where a dispute is unsettled. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over rather than unsettled. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be wise to verify this via your lawyers. A buyer’s conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to proceed with the purchase of a leasehold property the remaining number of years is less than 75 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease term for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Norwood Green charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold premises. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the fee that they propose to charge. The management information sought on or before finding a buyer, thus reducing delays. The average time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most common reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Norwood Green.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can a leaseholder apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Norwood Green conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?

Where there is a missing freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the price payable.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Norwood Green property is 6 Jessamine Road in August 2013. The Tribunals valuation (as annexed to the decision) calculated the amount payable as £18,355 for the freehold reversion This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 72.39 years.

My husband and I are acquiring a first floor flat in Norwood Green. At the point of instructing our property lawyer, we were told they were on all mainstream bank panels. Our mortgage broker called just now to say that they don't seem to be on the Aldermore approved list. Should that be true, what should we do? Do we just find a new lawyer that is on their panel or do we cover the costs for dual representation, with Aldermore selecting their own approved solicitor.

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is usual for the buyer’s lawyers to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the solicitor to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the property lawyer has to fulfill. Some lenders now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your conveyancing practitioner should contact Aldermore and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on Aldermore's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Norwood Green solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another property lawyer into the equation.
