Just acquired a terraced house in Coulsdon , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Coulsdon conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the registration formalities are concluded.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Coulsdon registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. At present roughly 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the property thus 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Coulsdon. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Coulsdon
Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply a car parking plan. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Coulsdon is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Coulsdon are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Coulsdon you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Coulsdon may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
How do I locate a Coulsdon law firm on the Aldermore conveyancing panel? I have wheels and am prepared to travel upto 10miles to meet the conveyancer.

Back In 2007, I bought a leasehold flat in Coulsdon. Conveyancing and Yorkshire Building Society mortgage are in place. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1991. The conveyancing solicitor in Coulsdon who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?
First contact HMLR to be sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. There is no need to incur the fees of a Coulsdon conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
We have reached the end of our tether in trying to purchase the freehold in Coulsdon. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?
Absolutely. We are happy to put you in touch with a Coulsdon conveyancing firm who can help.

The premium payable for the acquisition freehold of the properties should be £10,934 (Ten thousand,nine hundred and thirty four pounds) This case was in relation to 3 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 75 years.
