I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in St Luke's off the council. I have a mortgage offer with HSBC. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with HSBC, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in St Luke's differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in St Luke's contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because developers in St Luke's usually acquire the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in St Luke's or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in St Luke's I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in St Luke's suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business property in St Luke's and how can your lawyers assist?

The particular law that you refer to gives a safeguard to commercial lessees, granting the a statutory right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease reaches an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
