I am in the market for a low cost property lawyer. Should I go for for a national conveyancer or a family West Ham conveyancing lawyer?
In the main conveyancing lawyers in your location will benefit from strong connections with your local authority, which can assist with your West Ham conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will require on your transaction. It also helps if they have good connections with the Land Registry in your area West Ham, other conveyancers in the location and West Ham Estate Agents.
We note that you have a post code search directory listing firms on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I instruct them for our conveyancing in West Ham?

I understand that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to have this when acquiring a property in West Ham? or Apparently there is historic law that means some house owners residing in a parish church boundary may be liable to contribute towards maintenance to the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this relevant for conveyancing in West Ham?
Unless a previous purchase of the property completed after 12 October 2013 you may expect lawyers handling conveyancing in West Ham to remain recommending a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in West Ham I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in West Ham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years will be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
Can you offer any advice when it comes to choosing a West Ham conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?
When appointing a property lawyer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a West Ham conveyancing practice) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We recommend that you talk with several firms including non West Ham conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be of use:
If the firm is not ALEP accredited then why not? Can they put you in touch with clients in West Ham who can give a testimonial?
I own a first flat in West Ham. Given that I can not reach agreement with the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the premium due for the purchase of the freehold?
Where there is a absentee landlord 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 First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to assess the sum to be paid.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a West Ham premises is 46 Credon Road in January 2014. On 11 September 2013 Deputy District Judge Price sitting at the Bow County Court made a vesting order that the freeholder surrender his lease and be granted a new lease of the Premises on such terms as may be determined by the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber).The appropriate sum as concluded by the Tribunal was £7225 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 69.77 years.
On the hunt for a conveyancing solicitor in West Ham. I thought I had one sorted but they are not on the panel for TSB. It would appear that nowadays most banks only allow conveyancing practitioners on their panel. Very frustrating limiting the choice for the paying public. Please can you refer me to a good West Ham property lawyer that will help us as well as represent TSB?
