I am under pressure from the owner of a property in Barkingside to exchange within four weeks. What can be done to quicken up the conveyancing process?
In a situation where the seller is applying pressure for your conveyancing it is advisable to make sure that your conveyancer is familiar with the location as they will have local relationships and intelligence. It is possible that they would have transacted previoushomes in the same street. You would be best advised to use a Barkingside conveyancing lawyer. Second, be sure that the lawyer is on the member panel.

I happen to be the single recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Barkingside. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. Some banks would take a sensible view as this obligation is primarily there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Barkingside. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Barkingside conveyancing practitioner is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Barkingside solicitor having made sure that they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Yorkshire BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Yorkshire BS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Barkingside postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Barkingside.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Barkingside. Before diving in I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Barkingside - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
