At what point will exchange of contracts happen for residential conveyancing in Carshalton and am I required to attend the solicitors office?
Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Carshalton you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we work with supply a countrywide conveyancing service and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The signing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to address the formalities at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Carshalton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
My property lawyer in Carshalton has never been on on the Barnsley Building Society Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to continue with my family solicitor even though they are excluded from the Barnsley Building Society panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
Your options are as follows:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Carshalton solicitors but Barnsley Building Society will need to use a solicitor on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the total legal charges and result in frustration.
- Get an alternative practitioner to act in the purchase, remembering to check they are on the Barnsley Building Society panel

I have recently realised that I have 68 years remaining on my lease in Carshalton. I now want to get lease extension but my landlord is missing. What are my options?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have made all reasonable attempts to find the lessor. On the whole an enquiry agent should be useful to try and locate and to produce a report which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the freeholder can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer in relation to devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Carshalton.
Following months of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Carshalton. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Carshalton conveyancing firm who can help.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Carshalton residence is 21 & 23 Carshalton Grove in May 2009. the Tribunal adopted the figures presented as the premiums payable by the Applicant i.e. a total of £20,750. This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired lease term was 72 years.
I note that you have a post code search directory identifying law firms on the bank conveyancing panel. Do Carshalton conveyancing companies pay you a referral fee if I appoint them for my conveyancing?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to the any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Carshalton.
