Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Chiswick

I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years old) in Chiswick. 95% of the flats are already sold. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches as part of conveyancing in Chiswick?

You are putting yourself at risk in failing carrying out Chiswick conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would absolutely advise in no uncertain terms that you have them. Where timings and cost are top of your concerns you should consider with your lawyer about the options such as indemnity insurance available to you

Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Chiswick?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Chiswick your solicitor will request that you put them with monies to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. When the down payment is payable against the purchase price then this will be required immediately before contracts are exchanged. The final balance that is due will be payable a few days ahead of the completion date.

I am assisting my niece sell her house in Chiswick. Will the solicitor arrange the EPC or do I organise this?

Following the abolition of HIPs, EPC’s was kept a required element of moving house. An EPC should be to hand in advance of the property being advertised. It is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. Where you are instructing a Chiswick conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange energy performance certificates given their contacts with reputable Chiswick accredited person

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Chiswick. I have a mortgage agreed with Clydesdale. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, HSBC are being a right pain. The Chiswick solicitor who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but HSBC are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do HSBC have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that HSBC have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why HSBC may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My partner and I are planning on selling our property in Chiswick and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Chiswick conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Chiswick. We have lived in Chiswick for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

I am buying a new build house in Chiswick benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it may impact my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I'm remortgaging my primary house to a BTL mortgage with Accord Mortgages Ltd and intend to use the remaining equity as a down payment on a second house. The neighborhood we are looking at is Chiswick. Will your conveyancers be able to act for the two banks and tie in the conveyances?

Make use of our comparison tool on this page to be sure that the conveyancers are approved by both mortgage companies. Assuming that they are the conveyancer will be able to tie up the two transactions but you should have a chat with you solicitor and make apparent your expectations and needs.
