Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Camberwell

Me and my partner are soon to complete on the purchase of a property in Camberwell but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the owner in the sum of £3k by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process but HSBC will not permit this. Should they have been informed?

The lawyer being on the HSBC conveyancing panel is obliged to advise HSBC of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to notify the reduction to HSBC then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, HSBC and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Camberwell.

My property lawyer in Camberwell is not listed on the Nationwide Building Society Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my family solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the Nationwide Building Society approved list?

The limited options available to you here include:

  1. Complete the purchase with your existing Camberwell lawyers but Nationwide Building Society will need to instruct a lawyer on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the overall conveyancing charges as well as cause delays.
  2. Get an alternative solicitor to act in the conveyancing, remembering to check they are Nationwide Building Society approved.
  3. Try to convince your Nationwide Building Society solicitor to attempt to join the Nationwide Building Society panel

There is lots of here concerning conveyancing in Camberwell but what is your top tip for finding the right conveyancer in Camberwell

Do not opt for the lowest Camberwell conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

My wife and I are in the process of viewing flats in Camberwell and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a solicitor appointed at this point? I will be getting a mortgage with Clydesdale.

It would be sensible to commence 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 contact information on to the EA. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Clydesdale, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Leeds Building Society. Is it usual for Leeds Building Society to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Camberwell is approved on their conveyancing panel? Leeds Building Society have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I opted to have a survey done on a house in Camberwell prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor has said that some lenders will not give a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Camberwell. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Camberwell especially if they are accustomed to such properties in Camberwell.

I'm converting the mortgage on my current home to a BTL mortgage with Barclays Direct and intend to use the remaining equity as a down payment on further property. The neighborhood we are interested in is Camberwell. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two banks and link together the two deals?

Do use our search tool on this page to be sure that the lawyers are approved by both mortgage companies. Having checked that they are the solicitor will be able to tie up the two deals but you should have a chat with you lawyer and specify your desired outcome and needs.

My conveyancers in Camberwell have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the bank. Is it case that being on the lender conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?

It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the bank directly.
