Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Walworth

I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and have to vacate my rented property in Walworth by the end of next month. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to move into short term accommodation?

Generally one should not serve notice for your letting unless you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not already done so, update to your lawyer and request that they cajole the other lawyers, try to a target completion date that everyone will look to achieve

We are downsizing from our home in Walworth and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Walworth conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Walworth. We have lived in Walworth for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Walworth. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Walworth

    Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Walworth ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not grant a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Walworth.

We expect to complete the disposal of our £150,000 maisonette in Walworth in 5 days. The managing agents has quoted £396 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a flat conveyance in Walworth?

Walworth conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes ordinarily necessitates administration charges invoiced by managing agents :

    Completing conveyancing due diligence questions Where consent is required before sale in Walworth Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Walworth leasehold property is £350. For Walworth conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to supply answers.

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

You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Walworth conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Walworth residence 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 affected 3 flats. The unexpired term was 968 years.
