My IFA requires my Brixton lawyer’ panel reference for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I discover this. I have called my local Brixton office but they have not got back to me yet.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Brixton solicitor . Most Brixton conveyancing practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.
Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Brixton?
If you are buying a property in Brixton your solicitor will ask you place them with monies to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Normally this is requested to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. When the down payment is as part of the sale price then this will be needed immediately before exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is due will be payable shortly before completion.
We are aiming to move house in December. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Brixton. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from your selling agent however this can only be done when the previous owners solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. You should advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Brixton or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Brixton.
My partner and I are in the throws of viewing apartments in Brixton and I am about to put in an offer. Is it wise to have my conveyancer on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a mortgage with UBS.
It would be advisable to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent. Given that you are seeking a mortgage with UBS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel.
It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Brixton bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Brixton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they would not lend based on their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.
The solicitor has to comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 specifications for your 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
Just bought a semi-detached house in Brixton , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my title? My Brixton conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check that my purchase is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Brixton registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry have to notify any other parties. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration takes place after the new owner has moved in to the property therefore 'speed' is not always top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I'm remortgaging my current house to a BTL mortgage with Yorkshire Building Society and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a deposit on another house. The neighborhood we are looking at is Brixton. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of lenders and link together the conveyances?
Do use our search tool on this site to be sure that the lawyers are on the relevant lender panels. Assuming that they are your conveyancer should be able to tie up the two deals but you should have a chat with you solicitor and make clear your desired outcome and needs.
We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we instruct their chosen solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Brixton
We suspect that the owner is not behind this request. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Contact the vendors directly and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to appoint your preferred Brixton conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by head office.
