I went with a high street firm for my conveyancing in Selhurst last week. Reviewing the official terms of business it is apparent thatI am responsible for costs even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and choose an internet conveyancing company offering no completion no cost conveyancing in Selhurst?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to neutralise the transactions that do not go ahead. Please beware that these arrangements tend not to cover expenditure such as Selhurst conveyancing search costs.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Selhurst?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Selhurst. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I'm buying my first flat in Selhurst with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my solicitor about the extras as it would affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Back In 2005, I bought a leasehold house in Selhurst. Conveyancing and The Mortgage Works mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing solicitor in Selhurst who previously acted has now retired. Do I pay?
First contact HMLR to be sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Selhurst conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
Having spent months of negotiations we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Selhurst. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
if there is a missing landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the LVT to assess the premium.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Selhurst premises is Flats 55, 67 & 70 Melbourne Court Anerley Road in July 2013. The tribunal calculated that the premium for the extended lease at £48,366.00 for at 55, and £88,329.00 for ats 67 and 70 combined. This case related to 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 26.38 years.
