Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Canary Wharf

Is the fact that my solicitor in Canary Wharf is not listed on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should contact the Canary Wharf conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

I own a freehold house in Canary Wharf yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Canary Wharf and has limited impact for conveyancing in Canary Wharf but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home buying as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Canary Wharf. Do I pick up the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Canary Wharf?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Canary Wharf.

I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Canary Wharf. The Canary Wharf property was put into my name in August. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be caught by that. many lenders would take a sensible view as this provision is principally there to identify subsales or the quick reselling of properties.
