Me and my partner are purchasing a house in Brentford. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a solicitor? On completion day we have to deposit money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Brentford. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Brentford?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the owner’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
HSBC have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a house in Brentford has been agreed to, what are the next steps?
The property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancers are on the lender’s panel). Telephone HSBC or your financial adviser and finish off any appropriate forms. HSBC will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or vendor to arrange a slot for the valuation to occur. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. HSBC will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Brentford.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house can not be found. The conveyancers who handled the conveyancing in Brentford 5 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
Nowadays there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will know precisely where to look for all the suitable documentation so you may purchase or sell your property without a hitch. Where duplicates can’t be located, your solicitor can put in place insurance or indemnities against future claims on the property.
How does conveyancing in Brentford differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Brentford come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because builders in Brentford typically acquire the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Brentford or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Brentford I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Brentford for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
