My Wanstead conveyancer has spotted an inconsistency when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the conveyancing documents. My solicitor says that he is obliged to check that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s approach correct?
Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
Can you point me to a directory of Coventry BS panel solicitors in Wanstead on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the CML or Building Society Association websites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings viewable over the internet. Where you are in need of a Wanstead lawyer on the Coventry BS please use our tool.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Wanstead. I have a mortgage offer with Nottingham. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
Planning on purchasing a house in Wanstead. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Wanstead solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Wanstead took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 residence 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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Wanstead is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Wanstead are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Wanstead you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wanstead may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Wanstead?
For most leasehold sales in Wanstead conveyancing will involve, questions about the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

Copies of the building insurance and schedule
Deeds of covenant upon sale

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can a leaseholder apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Wanstead conveyancing firm to act on my behalf?
in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or where 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 Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to assess the amount due.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Wanstead premises is 36 New Wanstead in August 2010. The Tribunal arrived at a valuation of the premium for the freehold of £22,359. This case related to 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 73.92 years.
