We decided to go with a local lawyer for our conveyancing in Welling recently. After carefully reading the Terms I seeI am liable for costs even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or select an internet firm promising no move no charge conveyancing in Welling?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to counteract those conveyances that do not proceed. Dont forget that these arrangements generally do not protect you from disbursements such your Welling conveyancing search charges.
I am downsizing from our property in Welling and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a web based conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Welling. We have lived in Welling for 4 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You should 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 illness)
About to purchase a new build flat in Welling. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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 selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Welling
Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. 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. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.
I was advised by a couple of local property agents in Welling to find a property lawyer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to market your site ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t make any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Welling. Before diving in I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Welling - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars 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.
After years of dialogue we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Welling. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a Welling conveyancing firm who can help.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a Welling residence is 103a Footscray Road in January 2014. The tribunal determines that the premium payable for the extended lease should be £34,500 according to the expert witness valuation calculation This case related to 1 flat.
I have appointed a Welling conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (novice purchasers) and have spotted in the engagement letter that they are not regulated by the FCA. Should I be concerned or is that standard with conveyancing practitioner?
We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancer don't lend money. You should check that they are governed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who set strict obligations covering amounts deposited by them.
