I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for sale conveyancing in South East London. I've chance upon a site which appears to be the perfect solution If it is possible to get all this stuff completed via email that would be preferable. Do I need to be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?

I have just appointed agents to market my basement flat in South East London. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

It best that you discharge the invoice as normal given that all rents and maintenance payments will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

After months of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in South East London. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

The Tribunal was dealing with an application under Section 26 of the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 for a determination of the freehold value of the property. It was concluded that the price to be paid was Fifteen Thousand Nine Hundred and Seventy (£15,970) divided as to £8,200 for Flat 20 and £7,770 for Flat 20A This case was in relation to 1 flat.

My plan is to purchase a garden apartment in South East London. Conveyancing lawyer has been awaiting, from the seller, building insurance documents. This afternoon I was advised that the seller needs to send the insurance documents for the flat above as well. Why does my conveyancer want to review the insurance for the other flat? Is it strictly required? We have been stalled for the previous month…

It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in South East London to find Conveyancing in South East London in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats as opposed to the freeholder insuring the entire block - which is definitely better. Do check with your conveyancing practitioner but it would appear that your conveyancer is seeking to establish that the entire building is insured. Insuring a ground floor flat is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the other flat cannot be rebuilt as a result of lack of insurance cover.
