Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bedford Park

I am about to exchange on the purchase of a house in Bedford Park but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the seller in the sum of three thousand pounds by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement but Yorkshire BS will not agree to this. Should they have been approached?

The conveyancing practitioner that is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Yorkshire BS of any variations to the sale price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to notify the reduction to Yorkshire BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Yorkshire BS and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Bedford Park.

After looking at consumer advice sites for a cheap solicitor in Bedford Park, most post that I must use a CQS accredited lawyer. What is CQS?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised kitemark for legal experts in buying or selling property, trusted by some of the UK's leading mortgage companies. In 2011-12 the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Building Societies Association (BSA). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Council of Licensed Conveyancing.

I have recentlydiscovered that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Bedford Park for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest way to see if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Bedford Park conveyancing specialists.

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 housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because developers in Bedford Park typically acquire the land, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bedford Park or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Bedford Park is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Bedford Park are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Bedford Park you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bedford Park may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
