Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bloomsbury

The Bloomsbury conveyancing firm handling our Bloomsbury conveyancing has discovered an inconsistency when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My solicitor informs me that he needs to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s course or action appropriate?

Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

I am planning to move house in August. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Bloomsbury. Conveyancing solicitor was found prior to coming across this website.

On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from your property agent however this can only be done when the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Bloomsbury is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Bloomsbury are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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 residence.
