Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Burnt Oak

I am nearing exchange of contracts for my flat in Burnt Oak and the EA has just e-mailed to advise that the purchasers are changing their conveyancer. The excuse is that the mortgage company will only engage with solicitors on their conveyancing panel. Why would a major mortgage company only work with specific law firms rather the firm that they want to choose to handle their conveyancing in Burnt Oak ?

Banks have always had an approved set of law firms that can represent them, but in the last few years big names such as Yorkshire Building Society, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have represented them for more than 25 years.

Banks attribute this action to a rise in fraud as the reason for the cull – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society claims that it is hearing daily from firms that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. The buyers are not going to have any sway in the decision.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Burnt Oak is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Burnt Oak are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Burnt Oak you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Burnt Oak 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 premises.
