Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Elm Park

Last December we completed a house move in Elm Park. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Elm Park?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Elm Park. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller completes a form known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information is incorrect, you could possibly take legal action against the owner 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 Elm Park.

All being well we will complete the sale of our £400,000 flat in Elm Park next week. The freeholder has quoted £300 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Elm Park?

Elm Park conveyancing on leasehold apartments more often than not requires the buyer’s lawyer submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to such questions most will be content to assist. They may invoice a reasonable charge for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some situations it is in excess of £800. The administration charge demanded by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of rights and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. In reality you have little option but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.

Following years of negotiations we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Elm Park. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

Where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to make a decision on the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Elm Park residence is 37 Lodge Court High Street in November 2013. the decision of the LVT was that the premium to be paid for the new lease was £25,559 This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 57.5 years.
