I am buying a property mortgage free in West Beckton. I have resided for the last Seventeen years in West Beckton. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

If you not getting a mortgage, then almost all of the West Beckton conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she is duty bound to do this. One thing to consider; if you are intend to dispose of the house at a future date, it may be of importance to your future buyer what the searches reveal. On occasion properties with functional issues can still show up detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in West Beckton will provide you some helpful guidance here.

There are no two ways about it it’s preferable to find a conveyancing solicitor is to have guidance from friends or family who have actually experience in using the conveyancer that you are considering.

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agency in West Beckton where we have experienced a few leasehold sales jeopardised due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given inconsistent advice from local West Beckton conveyancing solicitors. Can you shed some light as to whether the vendor of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have 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 disposal of the property.

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 leaseholder of a two-bedroom flat in West Beckton. Given that I can not reach agreement with the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the sum due for the purchase of the freehold?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a West Beckton conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a West Beckton residence is 46 Credon Road in January 2014.

The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 69.77 years.

Should I be worried if there is an issue with the searches conducted as part of our conveyancing in West Beckton?

Usually, most adverse entries that arise in West Beckton conveyancing search responses can be handled prior to completion or title insurance could possibly be taken. You need to note that although you may be acquiring the premises and might be content to accept the search results, your lender may not, and when all said and done the decision rests with them.
