Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Clerkenwell

Me and my wife are acquiring our first home. The lawyer has e-mailedto enquire if we would like to order supplemental conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's appropriate for conveyancing in Clerkenwell

The type of Clerkenwell conveyancing searches depends entirely on the property, the location, the probability of any of these risks, your familiarity of the area and risks, your overall appetite to risk. What is important is that you properly understand what information the searches could give you. Then you can make a decision if you consider that you need that search. Where you are unclear, ask your solicitor to guide you.

My husband and I are hoping to buy a 3 bedroom apartment in Clerkenwell with a homeloan from Alliance & Leicester .We like our Clerkenwell conveyancing practitioner but Alliance & Leicester informed us she’s not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Alliance & Leicester panel lawyer or retain our local solicitor and fork out for a Alliance & Leicester panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the Alliance & Leicester approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Alliance & Leicester

I have todaybeen informed that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Clerkenwell for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?

The quickest method to check if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Clerkenwell conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Clerkenwell differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Clerkenwell come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Clerkenwell typically buy the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Clerkenwell or who has acted in the same development.
