Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Acton

I chose a local lawyer for my conveyancing in Acton recently. Upon checking the terms of engagement I seewe are liable for fees even where the transaction does not complete. Would I be best advised to choose a web based lawyer promoting no move no charge conveyancing in Acton?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to cover the transactions that do not proceed. You should be mindful that such promotions generally do not protect you from outlay by way of example Acton conveyancing search costs.

we are a couple who are buying a newly converted flat in Acton with a loan from Barclays .We like our Acton conveyancing solicitor but Barclays says his firm is not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Barclays panel solicitor or keep our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers must be on the Barclays approved list. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barclays

I have recentlydiscovered that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Acton for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest way to check if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Acton conveyancing specialists.

I am purchasing my first flat in Acton with a mortgage from Barclays Direct. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not reveal to my conveyancer about this extras as it may put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Acton is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Acton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Acton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Acton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent advised that the vendor will only move forward if we appoint their chosen conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer used to conveyancing in Acton

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Acton conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing targets set by head office.
