Do I need to attend the offices of the solicitor to execute the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Abbots Langley so that I can pop in to their offices if necessary.

Most approved lawyers for mortgage companies conduct their communications via the post, internet or over phone calls. This means that they can undertake the legal work for your home move regardless of where you live in England or Wales. That being said you should see if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if needed.

I am downsizing from our property in Abbots Langley and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a national conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Abbots Langley. Having lived in Abbots Langley for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Abbots Langley completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Abbots Langley. 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 are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Abbots Langley

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared.

I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Abbots Langley prior to retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not grant a loan on such a home.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements from Halifax. If you contact us we can check with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Abbots Langley. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Abbots Langley especially if they are familiar with such properties in Abbots Langley.

I'm buying a flat in Abbots Langley. I can find my conveyancer's company on the CLC list, but I can't locate my conveyancer's name on the list. Should I be concerned?

Not every individual in the practice must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the work, the actual day-to-day activity can be undertaken by unqualified staff.
