Last December we completed a house move in Camden. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been conducted for conveyancing in Camden?
The question is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Camden. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller fills in a form called a SPIF. answers proves to be incorrect, then you may have a claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Camden.
Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Camden in advance of instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor has said that some banks tend not issue a loan on this type of house.
It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions from Nationwide. If you call us we can check with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Camden. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Camden especially if they are accustomed to such properties in Camden.

We expect to complete the disposal of our £275,000 flat in Camden in 8 days. The managing agents has quoted £384 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Camden?
Camden conveyancing on leasehold apartments typically necessitates fees being levied by landlords agents :
Answering pre-contract enquiries
Where consent is required before sale in Camden
Supplying insurance information
Deeds of covenant upon sale
Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
After years of dialogue we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Camden. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
in cases where there is a absentee landlord or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to judgment on the price.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a Camden flat is Flat 2 27 Mackeson Road in December 2012. The Tribunal assessed the value of the lease extension premium at £35,435 and rounded the figure to £35,500 This case was in relation to 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 64.77 years.
I would be grateful if you would clarify what my options are where my Camden conveyancing searches reveals negative entries?
On the whole, most issues arising from Camden conveyancing search results can be dealt with before completion or indemnity insurance may be taken. You need to remember that regardless of the fact that you intend on purchasing the property and might be willing to accept the search results, your lender may not, and when all said and done they have the word say.
