I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must be out of my let out apartment in Tolworth by 29/10/2019. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. Can I complete in three weeks as don't want to have to find short term accommodation?
It is unwise to provide notice on a rental unless you have exchanged. If you have not previously done so, update to your conveyancer and request that they cajole the other solicitors, try to get a realistic time scale from them that all parties will aim to achieve
Are the Tolworth conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Principality conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Principality?
Tolworth conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Principality conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Principality directly.
three months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Tolworth completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Tolworth ahead of instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks may not issue a loan on this type of property.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions from Nationwide. Should you wish to call us we can check with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Tolworth. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a residential purchase having been directed to solicitors by the high street agent to execute conveyancing in Tolworth. I am not happy. Could you help me find new conveyancers?
A lawyer would need to be really bad in order to consider changing them. Has the mortgage been issued? In the event that it has you need to make them aware of the new contact details and have the mortgage documents are re-sent. The conveyancer should be on the banks approved list to avoid supplemental fees and complications. That should be your first question of the new solicitors. The search tool can help you find a lender approved solicitor for your home move in Tolworth
Frank (my husband) and I may need to rent out our Tolworth garden flat for a while due to a new job. We instructed a Tolworth conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
Some leases for properties in Tolworth do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
I have had difficulty in trying to reach an agreement for a lease extension in Tolworth. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?
if there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to decide the sum to be paid.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Tolworth property is Flat D 15 Claremont Gardens in September 2013. TheTribunal determined in accordance with section48 and Schedule13 of the Leasehold Reform,Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the extended lease should be fourteen thousand one hundred and eighty seven pounds (£14,187.00) This case affected 1 flat.
