My partner and I have just acquired a property in Copse Hill. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we consider were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Copse Hill?

The question is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Copse Hill. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller completes a document referred to as a SPIF. answers provided is misleading, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the owner for any losses that you have suffered.

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Copse Hill and elsewhere in South West London is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the transaction. E.g., the seller, estate agent and on occasion the bank. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Copse Hill is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the legal process whose responsibility is to act in your legal interests and to keep you safe.

My flat in Copse Hill is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Will my conveyancer have to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently in recent years.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Copse Hill I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Copse Hill for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
