Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Romford

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Romford is not on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his conveyancing?

That is most likely a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Romford conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

I am employed by a busy estate agent office in Romford where we see a few flat sales jeopardised as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Romford conveyancing solicitors. Can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?

As long as the seller has been the owner 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 need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is 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 buyer.

After months of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Romford. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Romford conveyancing firm who can help.
