Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Charing Cross

I am purchasing a garden flat in Charing Cross. Conveyancing solicitors are said to be ‘a necessary evil’ but can I do it myself?

Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Charing Cross you will have to appoint a solicitor on your lender's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender. Please feel free to use the search tool to find a lawyer on your lender panel in Charing Cross.

I have been advised by my conveyancer that restrictive coveneant insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Charing Cross?

The right level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Halifax and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

I happen to be the single recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Charing Cross. The Charing Cross property was put into my name in February. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in February. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement principally exists to identify subsales or the quick reselling of property.

Are all Charing Cross Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the UBS conveyancing list of approved firms?

Some major banks and building societies now use the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
