Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brent Cross

Is the fact that my solicitor in Brent Cross is not identified on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?

That is more than likely an incorrect assumption to make. 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 top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor 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 Brent Cross conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Brent Cross costs more?

In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Brent Cross and elsewhere usually requires more hours of investigation compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes checking the lease terms, corresponding with the landlord about serving required notices, procuring current service charge and management information, securing the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first granted.

4 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Brent Cross completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 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.
