Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Southall

Please help. My Southall conveyancer is assuring me that he has toapply for Southall conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Nat Westapproved lawyer panel. These Southall searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Southall conveyancing searches.

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Southall took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 premises 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Southall I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Southall in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my aunt I am disposing of a house in Neath but I am based in Southall. My conveyancer (approximately 250 miles from meneeds me to sign a statutory declaration prior to completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing lawyer in Southall who can witness and place their company stamp on the document?

Technically speaking you are not likely to be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Southall based

I work for a reputable estate agency in Southall where we have experienced a few flat sales derailed as a result of short leases. I have been given conflicting advice from local Southall conveyancing solicitors. Can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder 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 purchaser.

I am the proprietor of a two-bedroom flat in Southall. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the premium due for a lease extension?

Most definitely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Southall conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Southall flat is 33 Barbican Road in January 2013. The Tribunals calculation of the lease extension premium payable was £17,592. This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 55.12 years.

I have just placed an offer on an apartment in Southall and the mortgage adviser that we are dealing with recommended his lawyer. He quoted nine hundred pounds including VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound expensive?

You should not rely on a single quote. You should obtain like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Southall. Then pick one that you trust and just as important, is on the approved list of the lender that you are sourcing your mortgage from.
