Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Addiscombe

I am looking to buy a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Addiscombe who is on the HSBC Bank conveyancing. Can you recommend a local solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for HSBC Bank in certain locations such as Addiscombe. We dont recommend any particular firm.

We are selling our property in Addiscombe and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Addiscombe conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Addiscombe. Having lived in Addiscombe for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)

I used Wolstenholmes several years past for my conveyancing in Addiscombe. I now require my papers however cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

You should contact the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to help locate your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Addiscombe of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously used, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.

How does conveyancing in Addiscombe differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Addiscombe come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Addiscombe usually purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Addiscombe or who has acted in the same development.

Should I be concerned that estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm rather than a local Addiscombe conveyancing company?

As is the case with many service providers, often recommendations from relatives can be most helpful. But there are numerous players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and banks may recommend solicitors to choose. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to choose your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that the majority of mortgage providers specify a panel list of solicitors you have to use for the mortgage related work in your house move.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to choosing a Addiscombe conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Addiscombe conveyancing firm) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you talk with two or three firms including non Addiscombe conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be useful:

    If the firm is not ALEP accredited then what is the reason? Can they put you in touch with clients in Addiscombe who can give a testimonial?

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such issues? Can you recommend a Addiscombe conveyancing firm to help?

if there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to judgment on the price payable.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Addiscombe premises is 29 Woodstock Road in April 2014. the Tribunal determined that the premiums to be paid into court in respect of the purchase of the freehold registered at HMLR under Title N0.SY3997 should be £7,217. This case was in relation to 4 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 98 years.
