AssumingI were to purchase a freehold homein Ponders End mortgage fee and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Ponders End?
Any savings you would make would be limited to the disbursement for searches.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Ponders End. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Ponders End?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Ponders End. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be able to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.
We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from Santander as we wish to conduct alterations to our house in Ponders End. Do we need to appoint a bricks and mortar Ponders End solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Santander do not ordinarily instruct a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander conveyancing panel.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Ponders End conveyancing practitioners were instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Co-operative?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Co-operative completed the valuation? Have you informed Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I purchased my apartment on 12 August and my personal details is not yet registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Ponders End expressed confidence that it would be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Ponders End particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Ponders End registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any third parties. As of today in the region of 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration occurs once the new owner is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not usually primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
About to purchase a new build apartment in Ponders End. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Please supply a car parking plan. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
I work for a reputable estate agency in Ponders End where we have experienced a few leasehold sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Ponders End conveyancing firms. Please can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer can avoid having to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
After years of dialogue we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Ponders End. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Ponders End conveyancing firm who can help.
