Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Woodside Park

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Woodside Park? Why is this being asked of me?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the ID of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. If you refuse to supply identification documents, your lawyer would not be able to act for you.

What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Woodside Park

There are two types of lawyers who can do conveyancing in Woodside Park namely CLC regulated conveyancers or solicitors. Both professionals administer the legal services that required to complete the disposal or purchase of property. Both are duty bound to execute Woodside Park conveyancing on similar quality and guidelines so you can be sure that your conveyancing will be professionally carried out and that all requisite procedures should be accurately followed.

I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Woodside Park. The Woodside Park property was put into my name in May. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in May. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement is principally there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Kent Reliance are being pedantic. The Woodside Park solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Kent Reliance are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I acquired my home on 8 September and my personal details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Woodside Park said it will be concluded in less than a month. Are properties in Woodside Park uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Woodside Park registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the premises therefore an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

How does conveyancing in Woodside Park differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Woodside Park contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Woodside Park tend to buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Woodside Park or who has acted in the same development.

All being well we will complete our sale of a £150,000 maisonette in Woodside Park in just under a week. The freeholder has quoted £420 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Woodside Park?

Woodside Park conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not involves the buyer’s solicitor submitting enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer such questions the majority will be willing to assist. They are at liberty to charge a reasonable charge for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some cases it is above £800. The management information fee required by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have little choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to sell the property.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without getting anywhere. Can one make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Woodside Park conveyancing firm to help?

in cases where there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Woodside Park property is Flat 2 2 Netherfield Road in April 2010. The Tribunale held that premium payable for a 90 year extension to the existing Lease should be £7,705. This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 76 years.
