Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Borehamwood

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Borehamwood is not on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Borehamwood conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

Some advice if I may. My Borehamwood lawyer is assuring me that he has toapply for Borehamwood conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Santanderconveyancing panel. Is my lawyer correct?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a home loan with a bank your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Borehamwood conveyancing searches.

I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of delay in Borehamwood conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Borehamwood.

It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Borehamwood completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
