Are the BSA intent on creating a online directory to list practices on the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society conveyancing panel for instance in Addlestone?
We are not aware of any intention on the part of the BSA to promote such a search facility.
Various internet forums that I have visited warn that are the number one cause of obstruction in Addlestone conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Addlestone.
Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Addlestone in advance of appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor has said that some banks will refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold property.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you e-mail us we can check with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Addlestone. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Addlestone especially if they are accustomed to such properties in Addlestone.
I have been pointed in your direction by three or four local estate agents in Addlestone to find a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to promote your services ahead of another?
We refuse to offer any commission for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Addlestone. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Addlestone - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details 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.
I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such matters? Can you recommend a Addlestone conveyancing firm to help?
in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to decide the amount due.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a Addlestone flat is 147 Redford Close in June 2012. The Tribunal determined the lease extension premium to be at £4,200 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 82.93 years.
