I can't travel far from Alperton. I would like to know the understand why all Alperton conveyancers are not on all mortgage company panels?
Even though it may seem unfair for banks to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or conveyancer’s viewpoint, the flip side is that mortgage companies are increasingly anxious and consider it necessary to protect them against mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern banks are limiting their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.
Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the main cause of stalling in Alperton house deals. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Alperton.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Alperton prior to appointing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks will not issue a mortgage on such a property.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Alperton. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Alperton - 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.
I inherited a first flat in Alperton. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the premium payable for a lease extension?
Where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the LVT to decide the amount due.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Alperton premises is 99 Connell Crescent in May 2013. the Tribunal held that the relevant sum for the purposes of the lease extension should be £72,566 to be paid by the leaseholder This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 28.42 years.
