Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Thornton Heath

We opted for a local lawyer for my conveyancing in Thornton Heath yesterday. Reviewing the official terms of business it is apparent thatI am liable for charges even if the movedoes not happen. Would I be best advised to appoint an internet firm advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Thornton Heath?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be higher to offset the conveyances that do not proceed. Do bear in mind that these schemes rarely protect you from disbursements e.g. Thornton Heath conveyancing search charges.

I am selling our house in Thornton Heath and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an internet conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Thornton Heath. We have lived in Thornton Heath for three years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

I'm purchasing my first flat in Thornton Heath with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not disclose to my solicitor about the extras as it may put at risk my mortgage with Bank of Scotland. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Thornton Heath prior to instructing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor has said that some banks will not issue a loan on such a house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can check with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Thornton Heath. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Thornton Heath to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Thornton Heath. I happened to land on a site which appears to be the ideal solution If it is possible to get all the legals completed via email that would be ideal. Should I be wary? 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?

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Thornton Heath. Conveyancing and Virgin Money mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1998. The conveyancing practitioner in Thornton Heath who acted for me is not around. What should I do?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Thornton Heath conveyancing firm to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

Having spent years of dialogue we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Thornton Heath. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a Thornton Heath conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Thornton Heath flat is Ground Floor Flat 14 Lodge Road in October 2013. the tribunal held that the price payable for the acquisition of the extended lease of the property should be £12,590 .00 This case affected 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 69.46 years.
