Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Canary Wharf

My financial adviser has requested my Canary Wharf solicitor’s panel reference for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I discover this. I have called my local Canary Wharf branch but they have not responded to me.

The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Canary Wharf solicitor . Most Canary Wharf conveyancing practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.

Can your site be used to locate a Conveyancing solicitor in Canary Wharf even where I’m not purchasing or selling a house, for example if I want to acquire an office in Canary Wharf with a loan from Coventry Building Society?

The Canary Wharf conveyancing firm that just started acting on my purchase in Canary Wharf have without warning shut down. They were on acting for me because I had to have a lawyer on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel and my family Canary Wharf lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What are my options?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Yorkshire BS 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.

I am helping my step-mother sell her property in Canary Wharf. Will the conveyancer arrange the EPC or do I organise this?

Following the demise of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates was left as a compulsory element of moving house. An energy assessment should be commissioned before the property is marketed. This is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily organise. Where you are instructing a Canary Wharf conveyancing solicitor they might be willing to arrange EPC’s given their relationships with long established Canary Wharf assessors

We are getting the release of further monies on our mortgage from Bank of Ireland as we intend to conduct a loft conversion to our home in Canary Wharf. Do we need to choose a high street Canary Wharf solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

Bank of Ireland do not ordinarily require a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Bank of Ireland list.

I currently have a mortgage with Co-operative for my property in Canary Wharf. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Co-operative?

Co-operative must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Co-operative’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Co-operative directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Co-operative conveyancing panel solicitor.

How does conveyancing in Canary Wharf differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Canary Wharf come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Canary Wharf usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Canary Wharf or who has acted in the same development.
