Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Swiss Cottage

My partner and I have recently bought a property in Swiss Cottage. We have noticed several problems with the house which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Swiss Cottage?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Swiss Cottage. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a questionnaire referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information provided is inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Swiss Cottage.

A relative pointed out to me me that in purchasing a property in Swiss Cottage there may be a number of restrictions preventing external changes to the property. Is this right?

We are aware of anumerous of properties in Swiss Cottage which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Swiss Cottage should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

I am planning to move home in August. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Swiss Cottage. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the house keys from your estate agent but this can only take place once the sellers conveyancers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. Subsequently you can inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you find a conveyancing in Swiss Cottage or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Swiss Cottage.

When it comes to lenders such as Santander, do Swiss Cottage solicitors have to pay an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are unaware of any bank fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

I require expedited conveyancing in Swiss Cottage as I have a deadline to exchange contracts in less than 3 weeks. Fortunately I do not require a mortgage. Can I decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

If.Given you are not getting a mortgage you are at liberty not to do searches although no law firm would suggest that you don't. Drawing on our experience of conveyancing in Swiss Cottage the following are examples of issues that can be revealed and adversely impact market value: Enforcement Actions, Overdue Charges, Outstanding Grants, Railway Schemes,...

I decided to have a survey done on a property in Swiss Cottage ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not give a mortgage on a flying freehold premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can check via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Swiss Cottage.

All being well we will complete the sale of our £375,000 flat in Swiss Cottage in nine days. The managing agents has quoted £348 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Swiss Cottage?

Swiss Cottage conveyancing on leasehold apartments usually results in fees being levied by landlords agents :

    Answering pre-exchange enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Swiss Cottage Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Swiss Cottage leasehold property is £350. For Swiss Cottage conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to provide answers.

I own a ground-floor 1960’s flat in Swiss Cottage. In the absence of agreement between myself and the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the sum due for the purchase of the freehold?

in cases where there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to decide the premium.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Swiss Cottage premises is Raised Ground Floor Flat 20 Fitzjohns Avenue in July 2014. the Tribunal decided that the premiums to be paid for new leases in respect of the Raised Ground Floor Flat and the First Floor Flat were to be calculated as: Raised Ground Floor: £765,175.14 First Floor: £601,617.77 This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 16.83 and 16.43.

Is it true that a Swiss Cottage conveyancing practice taken to court by a client for failing to conduct the appropriate conveyancing searches?

We are not aware of such a Swiss Cottage conveyancing matter but it has been reported that, a couple purchasing a house in Cumbria successfully won a case against their property lawyer as a consequence of development permission to erect a wind farm not being picked up in conveyancing searches.

If you are purchasing in Swiss Cottage It is essential that your property lawyer carry out all Swiss Cottage conveyancing searches necessary making sure that you have accurate and current information before buying a home in Swiss Cottage.
