My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in South London. I I am struggling to find out if they are accepted on the TSB approved list of lawyers. Can you help?

The first thing you should do is call your conveyancer and enquire whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you should get in touch with TSB who may be able to confirm.

I have justbecome aware that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in South London for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of South London conveyancing specialists.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in South London in advance of appointing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks tend refuse to give a loan on such a property.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can look into this further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in South London.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only 68 years remaining on my lease in South London. I now wish to extend my lease but my freeholder is absent. What should I do?

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have made all reasonable attempts to find the lessor. On the whole a specialist should be helpful to carry out a search and to produce an expert document which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer both on devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing South London.

I inherited a a ground floor purpose built flat in South London. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the amount payable for the purchase of the freehold?
