Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Twickenham

I plan on acquiring an apartment in Twickenham. My property lawyer is not on the lender approved panel. Is it possible for me to continue with my Twickenham conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the bank approved list?

Your options include

  • Carry on with your preferred Twickenham solicitor but your lender will no doubt use a lawyer from their conveyancing panel. This will result in additional fees and probable interruption.
  • Get a fresh property lawyer to act in the purchase, ensuring that they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
  • Appeal to your conveyancing practitioner to seek to join the mortgage company panel

I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years old) in Twickenham. The vast majority the appartments are already disposed of. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Twickenham?

Conveyancing Searches are a vital link in the Twickenham conveyancing process. There are a large number of search providers conducting Twickenham conveyancing searches, as well straight from the local authority. These are usually referred to as personal search organisation and they produce, not surprisingly, personal searches. However, all Local Authority Search conveyancing products have one thing in common - they must obtain their information from the local authority.

Just bought a detached house in Twickenham , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Twickenham conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my purchase is recorded.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Twickenham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. At present in the region of 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration takes place after the new owner is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not typically primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Twickenham ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor has said that some lenders may not grant a mortgage on this type of home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different requirements for example to Halifax. If you call us we can investigate further with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Twickenham. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can a leaseholder apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Twickenham conveyancing firm to help?

in cases where there is a missing freeholder 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 First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to determine the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Twickenham residence is Ground Floor Flat 91 Bath Road in May 2009. in a case where the freeholder could not be traced, the Brentford County Court ordered that the Lease be surrendered in return for the grant of a new lease of the Premises at a premium determined by the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal. The tribunal concluded that the price payable by the Applicant for the new lease of the premises be £15,900 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 60.45 years.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Twickenham what are the most frequent lease problems?

Leasehold conveyancing in Twickenham is not unique. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are erroneous. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    A provision to repair to or maintain parts of the property

A defective lease can cause problems when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. HSBC Bank, Skipton Building Society, and Barclays Direct all have express conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to pull out.
