Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Barnet. I would like to know the reason why all Barnet solicitors are not on all mortgage company panels?

Banks point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The elimination of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for mortgage companies to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. It resulted in mortgage companies culling less reputable firms from their panel of approved conveyancers .

It is a dozen years since I bought my home in Barnet. Conveyancing lawyers have now been retained on the sale but I am unable to find the title documents. Will this cause complications?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be with the mortgage company or they may be archived with the solicitor who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Barnet relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.

The solicitors carrying out our conveyancing in Barnet has sent documents to review that reveal that the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Why is the property not registred at the Land Registry?

Whilst most properties in Barnet are now registered with the Land Registry there are still a few that remain unregistered. Any property in Barnet that has been transferred since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Barnet property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of Barnet conveyancing practitioners should be familiar with such matters but in the event that uncertainty reigns the prevailing guidance nowadays seems to be for the vendor’s solicitor to register the title first and then deal with the sale conveyance - this undoubtedly cause a significant delay.
