Back In 2002, I bought a leasehold house in Walworth. Conveyancing and Birmingham Midshires mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing solicitor in Walworth who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Walworth conveyancing solicitor to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

We have reached the end of our tether in trying to purchase the freehold in Walworth. 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 you can apply to the LVT to make a decision on the amount due.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Walworth property is 28 Valmar Road in June 2013. this was a case with an absentee freeholder. As a result the leaseholders applied to the Lambeth County Court for an order dispensing with the giving of a notice of claim. On 25 April 2013 District Judge Zimmels made a vesting order and directed that the matter should be transferred to this tribunal to determine the premium. The tribunal concluded on a figure of £1,125 This case was in relation to 3 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 968 years.

We are about to purchasing a apartment in Walworth. Conveyancing is not complete but we wish to keep the amount we are are buying for confidential from sites such as Rightmove. How do I ensure this is not noted?

HMLR as a matter of law obliged to note price paid data on a register of the title for residential properties countrywide which includes premises in Walworth. The register of title is a public document, so HMLR would be breaching their statutory obligations if they did not permit access to the register.

You can make a request of HM Land Registry to hide the amount paid entry however the response will be in the negative.
