Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brockley

Due to move into my new home in Brockley next Monday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the bank. What risks does the bank expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for banks would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Brockley. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Brockley?

On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Brockley. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Clydesdale, do Brockley conveyancing practitioners incur an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are not aware of any bank fees to register on their panel, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Brockley conveyancing solicitors have been instructed. How long does it take for Barclays to forward the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Barclays completed the survey? Have you informed Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of stalling in Brockley house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Brockley.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Brockley?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Brockley. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

How does conveyancing in Brockley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Brockley contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because developers in Brockley usually buy the land, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Brockley or who has acted in the same development.

I note that you have a post code search directory identifying solicitors on the bank conveyancing panel. Do Brockley conveyancing companies pay you a referral fee if I appoint them for my house purchase?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the bank conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to the any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Brockley.
