Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as a first time purchaser of a ground floor flat in West Drayton. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in West Drayton?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in West Drayton. Your solicitors will transfer the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be able to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.
I have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in West Drayton. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Aldermore?
You must advise Aldermore before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Aldermore directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel firm.
I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Co-operative are being pedantic. The West Drayton solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Co-operative are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I have justbeen informed that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in West Drayton for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of West Drayton conveyancing specialists.

There are only 68 years left on my flat in West Drayton. I now want to extend my lease but my freeholder is missing. What are my options?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the Court. However, you will be required to prove that you have made all reasonable attempts to find the freeholder. For most situations an enquiry agent would be helpful to conduct investigations and to produce an expert document which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the freeholder can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing West Drayton.
We have reached the end of our tether in negotiating a lease extension in West Drayton. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?
Where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the sum to be paid.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a West Drayton flat is 164 Nestles Avenue in October 2013. The tribunal agreed with the proposed price of £20,158 for the freehold and determined that that sum is the amount to be paid into court This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 69 years.
