Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Blackwall

Will my conveyancing lawyers need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Blackwall. My lender is The Mortgage Works

The Mortgage Works have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 19/2/2024, the requirements read as follows :

I have justbecome aware that Stirling Law have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Blackwall for a purchase of a leasehold flat 10 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest way to see if the property is in your name, you can carry out 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 Blackwall conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Blackwall differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Blackwall come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Blackwall usually purchase 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 conveyancers 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 Blackwall or who has acted in the same development.

I'm converting the mortgage on my primary home to a BTL mortgage with Alliance & Leicester and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a down payment on further property.

Do use our search tool on this page to ensure that the conveyancers are on the appropriate lender panels. Having checked that they are your conveyancer should be able to tie up the two transactions but you should talk with you solicitor and communicate your expectations and needs.

My father-in-law has suggested that I instruct his conveyancers in Blackwall. Do I follow his recommendation?

If you feel there may be other documents or you have any other queries please e-mail your request with details of the transaction and documents you need to filerequest@clc-uk.org. The CLC will let you know what information they have and any additional information they may need before they are in a position to identify and send the documents to you. Following an intervention it may take some time for the CLC to access archived files and documents, but your request will be actioned with reasonable haste.
