Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Campden Hill

Me and my partner are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Campden Hill with a mortgage. We have a Campden Hill conveyancer, but the bank says he's not on their "panel". It appears that we have no option but to use one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or retain our Campden Hill conveyancer and pay for one of their panel firms to act for them. We consider that this is unjust; are we not able to require that the lender use our Campden Hill conveyancer ?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Campden Hill conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

I am hoping to complete my purchase in Campden Hill next Friday. 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 lender. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?

All property lawyers on acting for lenders 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. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. These obligations are not limited to conveyancing in Campden Hill.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Campden Hill? Why is this being asked of me?

It is indeed that case that the requirement set out by your solicitor has nothing to do with conveyancing in Campden Hill. However these days you can not proceed with any conveyancing transaction if you have not supplying proof of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence and a bank statement. Remember if you are providing your driving licence as evidence of ID it needs to be both the paper section and photo card part, one is not sufficient without the other.

Verification of your source of money is mandated under Money Laundering Regulations. Don’t be offended when you are asked to produce this as your lawyer must retain this information on file. Your Campden Hill conveyancing practitioner will require evidence of proof of funds prior to accepting any monies from you into their client account and they will also ask additional queries concerning the source of funds.

The Campden Hill conveyancing solicitors that I recently instructed on my house acquisition in Campden Hill have suddenly shut down. They were on acting for me because I needed a firm on the HSBC conveyancing panel and my family Campden Hill lawyer was not. I wrote them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What do I do now?

If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the HSBC conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to assist.

There is lots of here concerning conveyancing in Campden Hill but can you isolate your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in Campden Hill

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the cheapest Campden Hill conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. 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 know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

I'm at the point of looking at flats in Campden Hill and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a property lawyer appointed at this point? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Nottingham.

You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. 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 estate agent. As you are obtaining a mortgage with Nottingham, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.

I had an offer accepted on a property in Campden Hill on 15/1/2024, valuation was booked 2 days later, all came back fine. Solicitor appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Are UBS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of obstruction in Campden Hill conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Campden Hill.
