Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Hendon

Completed the sale of my flat in West Hendon last June yet the purchaser is whats apping every few hours to say her conveyancer needs to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done following completion?

After completion of your disposal your lawyer should deliver the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Where relevant, your solicitor should also send confirmation that the home loan has been redeemed to the purchasers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion tasks unique to conveyancing in West Hendon.

There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in West Hendon but how do I know who's good?

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest West Hendon conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as RBS, do West Hendon lawyers face an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to register on their panel, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

We expect to receive a DIP from Santander this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint West Hendon solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Santander conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Santander through the process.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on our sale of a £450,000 apartment in West Hendon in six days. The management company has quoted £396 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and 3 years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in West Hendon?

West Hendon conveyancing on leasehold flats typically involves administration charges invoiced by freeholders :

    Addressing pre-exchange enquiries Where consent is required before sale in West Hendon Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for West Hendon leasehold premises is £350. For West Hendon conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to supply the information.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such matters? Can you recommend a West Hendon conveyancing firm to help?

Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a West Hendon conveyancing firm who can help.

The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 71 years.

When it comes to my conveyancing in West Hendon should I be charged VAT on the following: (1) Land reg fee on purchase (2) Pre - completion search fee (3) SDLT E submission on purchase (4) Bank TT fee

(1) Land reg fee on purchase - No (2) Pre - completion search fees -No, (such conveyancing searches are HMLR ones and means £4 and possibly £2 bankruptcy per name on your mortgage) (3) SDLT E submission on your purchase - There is no VAT on Stamp Duty. However if the firm is charging a stamp duty e-submission fee as part of their services - some West Hendon conveyancers do - that will incur VAT(4) Bank transfer fee - Yes it is for the solicitor's time in submitting the funds this way.
