My friend advised me that if I am buying in West Hendon I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is occasionally included in the estimate for your West Hendon conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out important information about West Hendon around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the West Hendon Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning West Hendon.
Just bought a semi-detached house in West Hendon , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My West Hendon conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are dealt with.
As far as conveyancing in West Hendon registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are completed within two weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in West Hendon I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in West Hendon in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I am an executor of my recently deceased mum’s Will, with a bungalow in West Hendon which will be sold. The house is unregistered at the Land Registry and I'm told that some buyers solicitors will insist that it is completed before they'll proceed. What's the procedure for this?
In the situation you refer to it seems prudent to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and official copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
