Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Hendon

I selected a high street lawyer for our conveyancing in West Hendon yesterday. Upon checking the Terms I noteI am liable for charges even if the sale aborts. Should I ditch them and appoint an on-line lawyer who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in West Hendon?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise those conveyances that do not proceed. Dont forget that such deals tend not to protect you from disbursements for instance West Hendon conveyancing search expenses.

I am buying a house for cash in West Hendon. I have lived for the previous Seventeen years in West Hendon. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a home loan, then the vast majority of the West Hendon conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to do this. Do consider; if you are likely to dispose of the house at a future date, it may be of interest to your prospective purchaser what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with apparent issues can still show up unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in West Hendon should be able to give you some sensible guidance in this regard.

I own a freehold house in West Hendon but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in West Hendon and has limited impact for conveyancing in West Hendon but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.

Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

We're in West Hendon, First time buyers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is RBS , and our lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I am four weeks into a freehold purchase having been referred to solicitors by the estate agent to do our conveyancing in West Hendon. I am am very disappointed with the level of service. Can you help me find new solicitors?

They would have to be very bad to suggest diss instructing them. Has the mortgage offer been generated? In the event that it has you will need to advise them of the new lawyer and get the mortgage documents are re-issued. The solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid supplemental expenses and delays. So that should be your first question of the new solicitors.

The management company has quoted £372 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in West Hendon?

West Hendon conveyancing on leasehold apartments more often than not requires the buyer’s conveyancer submitting enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to address such questions most will be content to do so. They may levy a reasonable charge for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it exceeds £800. The administration charge invoiced by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the charge is technically not due. Reality however dictates that you have no option but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to sell the property.
