Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Nunhead

If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Nunhead what would it be?

It would be unwise to be seduced by the cheapest Nunhead conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Nunhead building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Nunhead conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?

Your property lawyer has to comply with the CML Handbook section two requirements for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I had an offer accepted on a property in Nunhead on 27/3/2024, valuation was booked 4 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Skipton and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Are Skipton entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I need some expedited conveyancing in Nunhead as I am faced with pressure to exchange contracts inside 3 weeks. A home loan is not required. Can I decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

As you are are a mortgage free buyer you have the choice not to do searches although no lawyer would suggest that you don't. Drawing on years of experience of conveyancing in Nunhead the following are examples of issues that can appear and adversely affect future saleability: Enforcement Notices, Outstanding Charges, Outstanding Grants, Road Schemes,...

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Nunhead ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to issue a mortgage on such a premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you call us we can investigate further via the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Nunhead. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Nunhead especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Nunhead.

Do I need to be concerned about estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Nunhead conveyancing company?

As with many professional services, often recommendations from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. But there are numerous parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may recommend conveyancers to select. On occasion these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to appoint your own conveyancer. Don't forget that most mortgage providers have an approved list of solicitors you have to use for the mortgage related work in your house move.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £425,000 apartment in Nunhead next week. The management company has quoted £336 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and 3 years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Nunhead?

For the majority of leasehold sales in Nunhead conveyancing will involve, questions about the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Addressing pre-exchange enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Nunhead 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 lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Nunhead leasehold property is £350. For Nunhead 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 provide the information.

I have given up negotiating a lease extension in Nunhead. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Most certainly. We are happy to put you in touch with a Nunhead conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Nunhead residence is 41 Endwell Road in March 2013. this matter relateed to the acquisition of the freehold of a mid- terraced Victorian house converted into three separate self-contained dwellings. By an order dated 28/11/2012, Deputy District Judge Cole in the Bromley County Court held that the leaseholders were entitled to acquire the freehold and directed that the premium payable be determined by this Tribunal. The Tribunal assessed the premium to be £14,753 This case was in relation to 3 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 80.01 years.

Finally our conveyancing in Nunhead is set to complete on Friday, yet the people I am buying off wishes to move out 24 hours later at at 2pm. Can I accept such a idea?

In situations where you are having a mortgage then your property lawyer will demand that the property isvacant on Friday - the mortgage company will compel it.
