Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stratford

Why would I use a Stratford conveyancing practice when internet based alternatives are more affordable?

Its a good idea to scrutinise conveyancing costs in Stratford and you should seek an affordable estimate but don’t become consumed with hunting for the lowest priced Stratford conveyancer. Finding the right conveyancer can be the distinction between a seamless and a frustrating home move. You need to ensure that you have expert advice from a specialist lawyer. Emails can't be as helpful as a phone call and can never replicate a face to face consultation.

Our lawyers will inform you on headway and keep you informed. Should you need to call the firm you will be sure who to ask for and they will endeavour to make sure that you are kept fully informed.

Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the number one cause of stalling in Stratford house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Stratford.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Stratford?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Stratford. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

How does conveyancing in Stratford differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Stratford approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Stratford usually 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 conveyancers 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 Stratford or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking at a couple of apartments in Stratford both have about 50 years left on the leases. should I be concerned?

There are plenty of short leases in Stratford. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As a lease gets shorter the value of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more costly to extend the lease. For this reason it is often a good idea to extend the lease term. More often than not it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We advise that you get professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.

I have had difficulty in seeking a lease extension in Stratford. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

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