There is lots of information on this site about conveyancing in Queen's Park but what is your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in Queen's Park

Do not opt for the cheapest Queen's Park conveyancing quote. 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 go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Are all Queen's Park Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the RBS conveyancing list of approved solicitors?

Some major banks and building societies now use the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Queen's Park conveyancing solicitors were instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Co-operative?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Co-operative done 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.

My wife and I are intent on selling our property in Queen's Park and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Queen's Park. Having lived in Queen's Park for 4 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Queen's Park. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Queen's Park

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Please supply a car parking plan. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Queen's Park I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Queen's Park for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

Am I better off to instruct a Queen's Park conveyancing lawyer based in the area that I am buying? I have an old university friend who can handle the legal work but his firm is located 400kilometers away.

The benefit of a high street Queen's Park conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Queen's Park know how is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who used your friend and the majority were happy that should outweigh using an unknown Queen's Park conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of apartments in Queen's Park both have about forty five years unexpired on the leases. Do I need to be concerned?

There is no doubt about it. A leasehold flat in Queen's Park is a deteriorating asset as a result of the reducing lease term. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it reduces the marketability of the premises. The majority of purchasers and lenders, leases with under 75 years become less and less marketable. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a property with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Queen's Park conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that the agreed terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

We have reached the end of our tether in negotiating a lease extension in Queen's Park. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Queen's Park conveyancing firm who can help.
