I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Bedford Park for our house purchase. Our financial adviser informed us that our mortgage company Godiva Mortgages Ltd won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?
Pre- 2008 most lenders had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Bedford Park conveyancing firms would have been on most bank panels. The financial services regulator in 2010 carried out a thematic review into mortgage fraud which concluded: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, lenders are increasingly seeing more data from law firms about their operations and their employees as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum volume of transactions. Many Bedford Park conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Bedford Park is one of the thousands of areas where the lawyers we list are on the panel for Godiva Mortgages Ltd.
Just acquired a detached house in Bedford Park , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my title? My Bedford Park conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my ownership is registered.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Bedford Park registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. Currently approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not typically top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
How does conveyancing in Bedford Park differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bedford Park approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Bedford Park tend to acquire 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Bedford Park or who has acted in the same development.

I’m about to sell my garden apartment in Bedford Park. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just had a yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the invoice as you normally would because all ground rent and service invoices will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
