As well as upgrading the commuter links into London, there will be 5,000 new homes built, a new primary school and up to 3,000 new jobs created. The scheme also includes plans for shops, a cinema and cultural space, a health centre, and a marina.

How long does leasehold conveyancing take?
The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. Buying a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold home because there is more to prepare.
Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete managing agent information to an unreachable freeholder.
Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.
What do I need to know if selling a leasehold property in Edmonton?
The legal work for a leasehold flat is much more complex than it is for a freehold home.
The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Edmonton must undertake extra work, for example obtaining an up-to-date service charge statement, through to ascertaining if the incoming lessee (i.e. the seller) is required to buy a share in the building's management company.
To reduce leasehold-related delays, It is strongly advised that the vendor contact a conveyancer as soon as the decision is made to sell.
