Willappointing a Cricklewood conveyancing solicitor make my purchase more efficient?

On the whole conveyancing solicitors in your location will have good connections with your local authority, which could assist with the Cricklewood conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will inevitably need.

The Cricklewood conveyancing solicitors that just started acting on my house acquisition in Cricklewood have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I needed a lawyer on the Santander conveyancing panel and my previous Cricklewood lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What do I do now?

If you have an estate agent involved then let them know immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Santander conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to help.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Cricklewood 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor flat in Cricklewood. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have recently received a half-yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as normal because all rents and maintenance invoices will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I inherited a two-bedroom flat in Cricklewood. In the absence of agreement between myself and the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the sum due for the purchase of the freehold?

My a decade ago. He has since got wed, divorced and has recently married again. He now wants to the sell the Cricklewood property. I think he will simply be requested to provide a copy of the marriage certificates to the property lawyer however he is worried it will frustrate the home sale. Is it worth updating the Land Registry documents for the house?

It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the register on the basis that you have the proof needed to show how the name change occurred.

The buyer’s conveyancer should review the title entries and request evidence to establish the change of name for example marriage documentation.
