Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Southall?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Southall your lawyer will request that you to provide them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Ordinarily this is called for to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. If any deposit is payable against the total price then this will be needed immediately in advance of contracts are exchanged. The final balance that is needed should be transferred a couple of days prior to the day of completion.
How does conveyancing in Southall differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Southall come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Southall typically buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Southall or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Southall I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Southall suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

I inherited a first flat in Southall. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the amount payable for a lease extension?
in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to determine the sum to be paid.

My hope is to purchase a garden maisonette in Southall. Conveyancing solicitor is awaiting, from the owner, building insurance documents. Earlier today I was informed that the owner needs to send the insurance paperwork for the flat above as well. Why would my conveyancing practitioner need to see the insurance for the flat above? Is it really required? We have been waiting for the previous two weeks…
It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in Southall to discover Conveyancing in Southall in a minority of cases reveals that the lease provides for the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats rather than the freeholder insuring the complete premises - which is definitely preferable. Do contact your solicitor but it would appear that your lawyer is looking to establish that the entire building is insured. Insuring your flat is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be rebuilt as a result of lack of insurance.
