Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cricklewood

I can't travel far from Cricklewood. Is there a reason why all Cricklewood conveyancers are not on all bank panels?

Lenders highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The dismissal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for mortgage companies to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in mortgage companies pruning a number of firms from their panel of approved conveyancers .

Can the conveyancing solicitors identified through your search tool execute auction conveyancing in Cricklewood?

We know of a number of niche solicitors we can connect you with those who can conduct auction conveyancing. Cricklewood is just one of the many locations in which our lawyers are based.

We are purchasing a newly converted apartment in Cricklewood with a residential mortgage from Barnsley Building Society.We have a Cricklewood conveyancing practitioner but Barnsley Building Society advised that she’s not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Barnsley Building Society panel lawyer or retain our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The loan offered to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Barnsley Building Society solicitor panel. in the past, most lenders 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barnsley Building Society

What advice can you give us when it comes to finding a Cricklewood conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Cricklewood conveyancing firm) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We suggest that you talk with two or three firms including non Cricklewood conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be useful:

    What are the legal fees for lease extension conveyancing?

Having spent months of correspondence we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Cricklewood. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a missing freeholder or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to determine the amount due.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Cricklewood flat is 73 and 73a St. Pauls Avenue in October 2013. the Tribunal held in accordance with section32 and Schedule 6 of the Leasehold Reform,Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the enfranchisement was fifty three thousand three hundred and sixty one pounds (£53,361.00) This case affected 2 flats.
