It has been four months since my purchase conveyancing in Uxbridge took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 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 asset 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.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Uxbridge I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Uxbridge for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I was advised by a few property agents in Uxbridge to select a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your services ahead of another?

We refuse to offer any referral fee for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I am attracted to a couple of maisonettes in Uxbridge which have approximately forty five years left on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

There are plenty of short leases in Uxbridge. The lease is a right to use the property for a period of time. As the lease shortens the marketability of the lease reduces and it becomes more expensive to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease because mortgage companies may be unwilling to lend money on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We recommend you seek professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.

Following months of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Uxbridge. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

Most definitely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Uxbridge conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Uxbridge flat is 164 Nestles Avenue in October 2013. The tribunal agreed with the proposed price of £20,158 for the freehold and determined that that sum is the amount to be paid into court This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 69 years.
