Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Blackfriars

My husband and I are planning to acquire a 3 bedroom apartment in Blackfriars with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Blackfriars lawyer, however the mortgage company advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel solicitors or keep our Blackfriars property lawyer and pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. This seems very unfair; can we not demand that the bank use our Blackfriars property lawyer ?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Blackfriars conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

My wife and I purchased a semi-detached Georgian house in Blackfriars. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Leeds Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. Is it worth asking Leeds Building Society to clarify?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Blackfriars and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.

I opted to have a survey completed on a house in Blackfriars ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to issue a loan on such a home.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Blackfriars.
