We are about to sign contracts for a property in Canning Town. We have hit a snag. The mortgage offer with Barnsley Building Society runs out on 29/9/2021 but the owners are insisting on a completion date of 1/10/2021. Is it possible to extend the loan offer?
The person best placed to address this question is your conveyancer who should calculate whether he or she is should be discussing with the mortgage broker, vendor’s solicitors, selling agents or conceivably all parties based on the circumstances your conveyancing to date.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Canning Town. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Canning Town?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be invited to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
We are aiming to move house in August. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Canning Town. Conveyancing lawyer was found before I stumbled across your site.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from the selling agent however this should only happen once the sellers solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. After that you will need to advise the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Canning Town or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Canning Town.
Is it the case that all Canning Town conveyancing solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Lloyds approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Canning Town?

An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Canning Town is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Canning Town are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Canning Town you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Canning Town may determine 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 residence.

I have miscalculated my finances and am a few grand short a 10% deposit on my apartment purchase in Canning Town , but I still want to exchange. Do I have options?
You can agree a lesser deposit. Many property owners will accept a lower deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.
You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
