We are planning to move property in July. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Victoria Dock. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen prior to coming across this website.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the selling agent but this can only occur after the previous owners lawyers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you will need to inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Victoria Dock or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Victoria Dock.

I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Victoria Dock. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Not long after, the conveyancer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nationwide panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Should my conveyancer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Victoria Dock.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Victoria Dock. There are those who buy a property in Victoria Dock, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that can be initiated by the buyer or by their lawyers which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Victoria Dock. The conventional set of property information forms sent to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual inquiry of the seller to find out whether the property has historically flooded. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages resulting from an inaccurate response. The purchaser’s conveyancers should also conduct an environmental search. This will disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be made.

Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Victoria Dock from the perspective of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Victoria Dock can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ solicitors.
  • You believe that you know the number of years left on your lease but it would be advisable verify this by asking your conveyancers. A purchaser's conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to where the remaining number of years is below 75 years. It is therefore essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease term for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. Some Victoria Dock leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, you should notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references. Any bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are able to meet the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. If there is a history of any disputes with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where a dispute is ongoing. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as over rather than unresolved.

I am the registered owner of a garden flat in Victoria Dock, conveyancing was carried out September 2001. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding flats in Victoria Dock with a long lease are worth £181,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2075

With only 51 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £30,400 and £35,200 plus costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
