Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Barnet

Can I use your services to find a Conveyancing solicitor in Barnet even where I’m not buying or selling a house, for instance where I intend to acquire an office in Barnet with a mortgage from Halifax?

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to to identify solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel for instance in Barnet?

Lexsure has not been advised of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a register.

I am planning to move property in April. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Barnet. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from the selling agent however this can only occur when the sellers solicitors inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be handed over. After that you can tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Barnet or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Barnet.

When it comes to lenders such as Virgin Money, do Barnet solicitors incur a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are not aware of any bank fees to be on their panel, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

I'm at the point of looking at flats in Barnet and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a solicitor in place at this stage? I will be getting a home loan with TSB.

You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. As you are obtaining a mortgage with TSB, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the TSB conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I understand that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to take this when purchasing a residence in Barnet? or Apparently there is a law dating back centuries that could mean that house owners residing in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for maintenance towards the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this appropriate for conveyancing in Barnet?

Unless a prior purchase of the premises completed post 12 October 2013 you can expect lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Barnet to continue to suggest a chancel search and or chancel repair liability policy.

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Barnet completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Should I choose a Barnet conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can carry out the conveyancing however they are based 200miles away.

The benefit of a local Barnet conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute documents, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local insight which is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust instructed your friend and they were content that must trump using an unfamiliar Barnet conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.
