Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sydenham Hill

My wife and I are intent on buying a maisonette in Sydenham Hill. My lawyer has never been on on the lender solicitor list. Am I still permitted to use my Sydenham Hill conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the mortgage company panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?

You will need to have a lawyer to deal with the formalities if you need a loan to purchase your home. They will carry out all the appropriate due diligence on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. One could instruct a Sydenham Hill conveyancing practitioner of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the solicitor selected is not a member of the mortgage company conveyancing panel additional charges will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Bank panel applications may be submitted, so where your solicitor has not historically sought membership they can do so.

How up to date is your database of Sydenham Hill solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel? Do Clydesdale send you an updated list?

Sydenham Hill conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Clydesdale directly.

I am aiming to move home in April. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Sydenham Hill. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across this site.

On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from the property agent but this can only take place after the sellers conveyancers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released. Subsequently you will need to inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal company but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Sydenham Hill or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Sydenham Hill.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Sydenham Hill. I have a mortgage offer with Virgin Money. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Virgin Money, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.

After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Sydenham Hill. My financial adviser suggested a property lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £150. Not long after, the conveyancing practitioner contacted me to say that they were not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Kent Reliance panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Sydenham Hill is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Sydenham Hill are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Sydenham Hill you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Sydenham Hill may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

I work for a busy estate agency in Sydenham Hill where we have witnessed a number of flat sales derailed as a result of short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Sydenham Hill conveyancing firms. Can you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can commence 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 start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser need not have to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, 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 am the registered owner of a garden flat in Sydenham Hill. In the absence of agreement between myself and the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the sum payable for a lease extension?
