Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Slough

I am in need of a property lawyer. Should I go for for a web based conveyancer or a family Slough conveyancing lawyer?

Established third party connections are another important factor to consider when appointing conveyancing solicitors. Slough law firms benefit from connections with lenders and selling, local authorities, valuers and other conveyancing firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Possessing a wealth of knowledge of the local area is also a plus .

Last March we completed a house move in Slough. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Slough?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Slough. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor fills in a document called a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information ends up being incorrect, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Slough.

I moved into my apartment on 16 August and the transaction details is not yet registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Slough expressed confidence that it should be recorded in less than a month. Are properties in Slough particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Slough is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any interested parties. At present approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the premises so 'speed' is not usually an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Slough is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Slough are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Slough you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Slough may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £175,000 apartment in Slough next week. The freeholder has quoted £312 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Slough?

Slough conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes nine out of ten times necessitates administration charges raised by managing agents :

    Answering pre-contract enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Slough Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Slough leasehold premises is £350. For Slough conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to supply answers.

Slough Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should ask before Purchasing

    Most Slough leasehold apartments will be liable to pay a service charge for maintenance of the block set by the management company. Should you buy the flat you will have to pay this contribution, normally periodically throughout the year. This may be anything from several hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for bigger purpose-built blocks. In all likelihood there will be a rentcharge for you to pay annual, this is usually not a large sum, say around £25-£75 but you should to enquire as sometimes it can be surprisingly expensive. Generally speaking the cost for major works are not built into the maintenance charges, albeit that there some managing agents in Slough ask leasehold owners to pay into a reserve fund and this is used to offset against larger repairs or maintenance.

Can you refer me to a solicitor for purchasing a bungalow? Ideally someone in the Slough area, who will communicate via email - not someone who insists on a letter in the post or fax.
