Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stamford Hill

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Stamford Hill? What am I being asked for?

Stamford Hill conveyancing solicitors as well as nationwide property practitioners accross the UK have a duty under money laundering regulations to verify the identity of any client in order to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.

Conveyancing clients will need to provide two forms of certified ID; proof of identity (typically a Passport or Driving Licence) and proof of address (typically a Bank Statement no older than three months).

Proof of the origin of monies is also necessary in compliance with the money laundering laws as solicitors are mandated to check that the monies you are using to purchase a property (whether it be the deposit for exchange or the total purchase amount where you are buying without a mortgage) has originated from a reputable source (such as employment savings) rather than the product of illegitimate activity.

My colleague suggested that where I am purchasing in Stamford Hill I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard Stamford Hill conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about Stamford Hill around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Stamford Hill Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information about Stamford Hill.

I am buying a new build house in Stamford Hill with a mortgage from Alliance & Leicester . The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the deal as it could put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.

Given that I am about to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on 3 bedroom house in Stamford Hill I wish to talk to a conveyancer about mytransaction prior to appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?

This is something that we recommend - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer who will be doing your conveyancing in Stamford Hill.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important person, not a matter number. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for your conveyancing in Stamford Hill should be the figure that you are charged.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Stamford Hill. I've discover a web site which appears to be the perfect solution If it is possible to get all this stuff completed via email that would be preferable. Should I be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

I am employed by a busy estate agency in Stamford Hill where we have experienced a few flat sales jeopardised as a result of short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Stamford Hill conveyancing solicitors. Can you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?

As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 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 sale.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord 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 buyer.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without getting anywhere. Can I make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Stamford Hill conveyancing firm to represent me?

Where there is a absentee landlord or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to assess the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Stamford Hill property is Flat 25, Stamford Hill Mansions Stamford Hill in April 2010. The Tribunal therefore determined that the premium to be paid by the lessee to the freeholder for the extension of the lease should be £28,984.00 This case affected 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 59 years.
