Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brent Cross

I am purchasing a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Brent Cross who is on the Birmingham Midshires conveyancing. Can you recommend a local solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Birmingham Midshires in certain locations such as Brent Cross. We dont recommend any particular firm.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Coventry BS. Brent Cross conveyancing lawyers have been selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Coventry BS?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Coventry BS done the survey? Have you advised Coventry BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

We expect to receive a AIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Brent Cross solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Brent Cross solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.

It is not clear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Brent Cross building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Brent Cross conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the solicitor is on the bank panel, she or he must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that may affect a commercial premises in Brent Cross?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Brent Cross will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers spend in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Brent Cross.

These searches are not ordered for residential conveyancing in Brent Cross.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Brent Cross is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Brent Cross are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Brent Cross you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Brent Cross may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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 property.

Taking into account that I am about to part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a house in Brent Cross I wish to talk to a solicitor about myhouse move before appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer who will be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Brent Cross.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a case number. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for residential conveyancing in Brent Cross should be the figure that you end up paying.

My wife and I have just become aware that one of the partners of the conveyancing practice handling the purchase conveyancing in Brent Cross is is the brother of the vendor. Is this allowed?

Provided there is no conflict of interest this should be fine. Where you are requiring mortgage finance then the bank may have a say as many mortgage companies have specific requirements concerning this. For example for Bradford & Bingley as of 11/1/2022, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Your firm may only act if a separate fee earner or partner within the firm acts for us.
