Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Totteridge

Me and my partner are acquiring a flat in Totteridge. My Conveyancer has never been on on the bank conveyancing panel. Can I still appoint my Totteridge conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the lender list of approved lawyers?

You must appoint a solicitor to complete the formalities when you take out a loan to buy your home. The solicitor will conduct all the relevant investigations on the property, make sure that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is dealt with. One may select a Totteridge solicitor of your choice. Nevertheless, if the conveyancing practitioner appointed is not on the mortgage company solicitor panel further costs will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so if your solicitor has not in the past applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

Are the Totteridge conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Clydesdale?

Totteridge 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.

We wanted to use a property lawyer in Totteridge for our house move. Our broker has since advised us that our mortgage lenders Barnsley Building Society won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

A mortgage company will insist on an approved conveyancer act for it. Borrowers are liable to meet the charges for this. Please make use of our directory service to find a solicitor to carry conveyancing in Totteridge on the Barnsley Building Society conveyancing panel.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property are lost. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Totteridge 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be retained by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is easy to carry out a search at the Land Registry, find your property and get up to date copies of the property title for a small fee. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for twenty pounds.

I am purchasing my first flat in Totteridge with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it could jeopardize my mortgage with Halifax. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

Completion is due on our sale of a £475,000 flat in Totteridge in just under a week. The managing agents has quoted £348 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Totteridge?

Totteridge conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not requires the purchaser’s conveyancer sending questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer these enquiries most will be content to assist. They are entitled to levy a reasonable administration fee for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it is in excess of £800. The management information fee levied by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in respect of administration charges, without which the invoice is technically not due. In reality you have no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to sell the property.

I have given up seeking a lease extension in Totteridge. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

if there is a absentee freeholder or if there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to judgment on the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Totteridge flat is Flat 2 2 Netherfield Road in April 2010. The Tribunale held that premium payable for a 90 year extension to the existing Lease should be £7,705. This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 76 years.
