We hired a Brondesbury based lawyer for my conveyancing in Brondesbury last week. After carefully reading the Terms I seewe are liable for costs even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and select an internet firm advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Brondesbury?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be higher to neutralise those conveyances that do not go ahead. Do bear in mind that such offerings tend not to cover expenditure such as Brondesbury conveyancing search costs.
We are only a couple days away from an exchange on a flat in Brondesbury and my parents have transferred the 10% deposit to my property lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not arrived from me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
Your lawyer is duty bound to check with the bank to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only disclose this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
It is 10 years ago since I bought my property in Brondesbury. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I can't find the title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be with the lender or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Brondesbury relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.
