Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sydenham

We chose a local lawyer for my conveyancing in Sydenham today. Upon checking the small print I notewe are on the hook for fees even if the dealfalls through. Should I ditch them and select an on-line conveyancing brokerage who offer no completion no cost conveyancing in Sydenham?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to offset those conveyances that fail to complete. Also remember that such offerings rarely cover disbursements such as Sydenham conveyancing search expenses.

A friend suggested that where I am buying in Sydenham I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

This is a search is usually quoted for as part of the standard Sydenham conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and detailing significant information about Sydenham around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Sydenham Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Sydenham.

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

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Sydenham. 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…’

I am 3 weeks into a residential purchase having been directed to solicitors by the estate agent to perform conveyancing in Sydenham. I am not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?

A solicitor would have to be very bad in order to consider changing them. Has your mortgage offer been generated? If so you need to inform them of the replacement solicitor and ensure the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your conveyancer should be on the lenders approved list to avoid added fees and frustration. So that should be your starting point. Our find a solicitor tool can help you find a lender approved conveyancer for your home move in Sydenham

I have recently realised that I have Fifty years left on my lease in Sydenham. I now want to extend my lease but my landlord is absent. What are my options?

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be lengthened by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to find the landlord. On the whole a specialist may be useful to try and locate and to produce an expert document which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer both on investigating the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court overseeing Sydenham.

Following months of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Sydenham. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a absentee landlord or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to judgment on the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Sydenham flat is Flat 5 4 Border Crescent in December 2013. the tribunal calculated that premium payable for the acquisition of a lease extension of the subject premises was in the sum of £14,900 (Fourteen thousand, nine hundred pounds). Those advising the applicant were advised to send a copy of the decision and a copy of the new lease with the premium (less the applicants costs as assessed by the Court) to the Croydon County Court (under claim number 3CR01226) for an officer of the Court to execute the new lease on behalf of the absentee landlord who is missing and cannot be traced). This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 69 years.

Is it true that a Sydenham conveyancing solicitor taken to court by a client for failing to conduct comprehensive conveyancing investigations?

We are not aware of such a Sydenham conveyancing claim but according to a recent report, clients purchasing a home in Cumbria successfully sued their property lawyer as a consequence of development plans to erect a wind farm not being picked up in conveyancing searches.

Where you are buying in Sydenham It is critical that your property lawyer purchase all Sydenham conveyancing searches needed making sure that you have relevant and current information ahead of purchasing a property.
