My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we use the agent's recommended solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Old Malden

It is highly unlikely the vendors are driving this. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is going to damage their objectives. Contact the owners directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Old Malden conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by HQ.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Old Malden. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Old Malden - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

Being a tenant I am on the hook for a maintenance contribution for my flat in Old Malden. Due to redundancy and other issues I fell into arrears with remittance. I negotiated a clearance plan but there remains around £1750 due to be paid.

I now wish to dispose of the property and I am panicking this will threaten to derail the sale if I have to discharge the arrears now. Do I have to settle before - is this viable?
