As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Park Royal what’s the number one tip you can give me concerning the ownership transfer in Park Royal

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Park Royal and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the house moving process. For example, the seller, property agent and on occasion a lender. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Park Royal is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the transaction whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.

Every so often a third party with a vested interest may attempt to convince you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your lawyer is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do something that is against your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

I purchased my apartment on 7 March and the transaction details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Park Royal expressed confidence that it should be dealt with inside ten days. Are transfers in Park Royal particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Park Royal is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration occurs once the new owner has moved in to the property so 'speed' is not always an essential issue yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Park Royal. 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.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Park Royal

    Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply a car parking plan. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.

I am employed by a reputable estate agency in Park Royal where we see a few flat sales put at risk as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received inconsistent advice from local Park Royal conveyancing firms. Please can you confirm whether the seller of a flat can commence the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or at the same time as completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

I am the leaseholder of a garden flat in Park Royal. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the amount payable for the purchase of the freehold?

in cases where there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes you can apply to the LVT to arrive at the price.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Park Royal residence is 99 Connell Crescent in May 2013. the Tribunal held that the relevant sum for the purposes of the lease extension should be £72,566 to be paid by the leaseholder This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 28.42 years.
