Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Kensington

It has come to my attention via my financial adviser that my West Kensington lawyer is not on the lender Solicitor panel. How can I be certain that this is indeed the case?

You need to contact your West Kensington lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a West Kensington conveyancing practice that is on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.

We are looking to buy a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in West Kensington who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Skipton . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in West Kensington.

It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in West Kensington concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am purchasing my first flat in West Kensington with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my solicitor about the deal as it will impact my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in West Kensington. Before diving in I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in West Kensington - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

Despite our best endeavours, we have been unsuccessful in trying to reach an agreement for a lease extension in West Kensington. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

if there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to decide the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a West Kensington premises is 93 Oakwood Court in June 2010. the LVT determined that the premium to be paid for the new lease was £492,083, This case affected 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 37.79 years.
