With plenty of history conveyancing in Blackfriars the following are examples of what can appear and adversely impact future saleability: Enforcement Notices, Overdue Charges, Overdue Grants, Road Schemes,...

I bought my house on 1 June and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Blackfriars expressed confidence that it should be registered inside ten days. Are properties in Blackfriars uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Blackfriars is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I decided to have a survey done on a property in Blackfriars before instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to issue a loan on a flying freehold premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can check via the appropriate lender.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent has warned us that the owners will only proceed if we appoint the agent's recommended lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Blackfriars

We suspect that the seller is not behind this requirement. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Blackfriars conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give the estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing figures pre-set by head office.

I need to swap lawyers as my Blackfriars lawyer is not on the mortgage company's panel of conveyancing solicitors. Is it practical to instruct different lawyers?

In the event that you have not formally appointed a conveyancer to start work and at this stage simply received an estimate as to costs, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Blackfriars that you're thinking of instructing.
