About to purchase a new build apartment in Waltham Forest. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Waltham Forest

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Am I right to be concerned that brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Waltham Forest conveyancing firm?

As with lots of professional services, often suggestions from family and friends can be very helpful. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all put forward conveyancers to choose. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to appoint your preferred lawyer. Don't forget that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of law firms you must use for the mortgage related work in your house move.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Waltham Forest. Before diving in I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Waltham Forest - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

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

in cases where there is a missing freeholder or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the amount due.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Waltham Forest premises is 32 Howard Road in June 2012. the Tribunal held that premium payable for the freehold reversion should be £35,825 This case related to 2 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 64 years.

My conveyancer in Waltham Forest is asking me for personal identification documents saying that this forms part of his requirements as a conveyancer on the bank Solicitor panel. Is this right?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require Waltham Forest conveyancing solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identity of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business. The Terms and Conditions that you need to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lawyer is right that the mortgage company also require certain documents to be viewed. If a you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to accept instructions from you. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the mortgage company's UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements
