It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Ruislip completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am buying a new build flat in Ruislip. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Ruislip

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. 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. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?

I have been recommended by a few property agents in Ruislip to find a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your services ahead of another?

We refuse to make any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

We're FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the selling agent informed us that the owners will only move forward if we use their chosen conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Ruislip

It is improbable the sellers are driving this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Contact the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Ruislip conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by senior management.

I own a leasehold flat in Ruislip. Conveyancing was completed in 21012. I have heard that I should not let the the remaining lease term to get too short. Why is that a problem?

Ruislip leasehold properties are for a fixed period - normally just under one hundred years when they started. However a significant flats in Ruislip were constructed or converted in the 60’s and so these leases now have under 80 years remaining. That may seem like a long time however Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage lenders on the whole require leases to have at least seventy five years left to adequate security. Accordingly when you come to sell the property you will need to extend the term of your lease if you are nearing eighty years. To enhance your property value you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease well in advance of selling the property. Please note that there are advantages to doing so before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease falls below 80 years the amount to be paid to extend starts to escalate.
