Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that may impact a commercial land in St Pancras?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in St Pancras will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers expend in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in St Pancras. The search result provides definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in St Pancras.
For each commercial conveyancing transaction in St Pancras it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

I purchased a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in St Pancras. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Barclays . I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in St Pancras and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.
I'm purchasing a new build house in St Pancras with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the deal as it could put at risk my loan with Accord Mortgages Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Is it best to choose a St Pancras conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can execute the legal work however his firm is located approximately 350miles drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street St Pancras conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local St Pancras know how is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were content that should outweigh using an unfamiliar St Pancras conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being St Pancras based.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in St Pancras. Before I get started I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in St Pancras - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
Having spent months of negotiations we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in St Pancras. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
if there is a missing freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the LVT to calculate the premium.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a St Pancras property is Flat 89 Trinity Court Grays Inn Road in February 2013. the Tribunal found that the premium to be paid by the tenant on the grant of a new lease, in accordance with section 56 and Schedule 13 to the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 should be £36,229. This case affected 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 66.8 years.
