My fiance’s mother is a solicitor. I anticipate that I'll be able to get friends and family pricing for conveyancing, but if not, what level of costs would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Walworth?
You should compare pricing. Make use of our search tool on this site. Whilst quotes will contrast greatly but the service one can expect are distinct between solicitors as is true with the vast majority of professional services.
I am soon to exchange on the purchase of a property in Walworth but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the seller in the sum of £3k in the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement but Lloyds will not agree to this. Should they have been approached?
The lawyer being on the Lloyds approved list is duty bound to advise Lloyds of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to notify the price change to Lloyds then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Lloyds and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Walworth.

I am purchasing my first flat in Walworth benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent told me not to tell my lawyer about the deal as it will put at risk my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I am employed by a long established estate agent office in Walworth where we have witnessed a few flat sales derailed due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Walworth conveyancing firms. Please can you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer can avoid having to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
I am the proprietor of a ground floor flat in Walworth. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the sum payable for a lease extension?
You certainly can. We can 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 as at the valuation date was 968 years.
