Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Blackheath

My husband and I are hoping to purchase a property in Blackheath and are in fact using a Blackheath conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our property lawyer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through with a view to exchanging next week. Accord Mortgages Ltd have this afternoon contacted us to inform me that they have now hit a problem as our Blackheath conveyancer is not on their approved list of lawyers. What do we do from here?

When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is standard for the purchasers' lawyers to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Blackheath solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.

As you are not obtaining a mortgage you have the choice not to have searches carried out although no lawyer would suggest that you don't. Drawing on years of experience of conveyancing in Blackheath the following are instances of what can crop up and therefore affect future mortgageability: Refused Planning Applications, Overdue Charges, Outstanding Grants, Unadopted Roads,...

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Blackheath?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Blackheath.

About to purchase a new build flat in Blackheath. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Blackheath

    Please supply a car parking plan. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent advised that the vendor will only move forward if we use the agent's preferred solicitors as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in Blackheath

It is highly unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Blackheath conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.
