Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Edmonton

Various online forums that I have come across warn that are a common reason for delay in Edmonton house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Edmonton.

four months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Edmonton completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Edmonton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Edmonton contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because house builders in Edmonton tend to buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Edmonton or who has acted in the same development.

Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Edmonton?

Edmonton conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes normally results in fees being levied by freeholders :

    Addressing pre-exchange enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Edmonton Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Edmonton leasehold property is £350. For Edmonton conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to provide answers.
