I am expecting a mortgage with Halifax. I intend to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Barnes. Does the Halifax Solicitor panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Halifax conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Barnes conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel?
Barnes conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Kent Reliance directly.

The deeds to my house can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Barnes 4 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?
These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your solicitor should be aware precisely where to locate all the relevant paperwork so you can buy or dispose of your property without a hitch. Where duplicates are not available, your lawyer may be able to put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your property.
I am looking into buying my first house which is in Barnes and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Barnes. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Barnes area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?
Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Barnes. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found
I work for a long established estate agent office in Barnes where we have experienced a few flat sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Barnes conveyancing solicitors. Please can you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I own a basement flat in Barnes. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the premium due for the purchase of the freehold?
if there is a missing freeholder or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to determine the price payable.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Barnes premises is 25 Petley Road in February 2010. The Tribunal determined that the price payable for the freehold of the subject premises should be £18,760. This case was in relation to 2 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 156.6 years and 66.6 years.
