Are you able to vouch for a Bank of Scotland approved Cricklewood conveyancing conveyancer who can have us moved in within under 3 weeks? Am I best advised to unstruct a high street Cricklewood firm or a nationwide comparison site?
We can recommend some very good Cricklewood conveyancing firms. You can also walk up the high street in Cricklewood. Visit some well established firms and request to speak with a conveyancing solicitor for a quote. Explain your time frames together with the reasons and ask for an assurance on your deadline. Select the lawyer that you trust.
I am assisting my sister sell her flat in Cricklewood. Will the conveyancer order an energy assessment or do I organise this?
Following the demise of Home Information Packs, EPC’s became a compulsory component of moving house. An energy assessment should be to hand prior to the property being put on the market. It is not a task that law firms normally organise. If you are using a Cricklewood conveyancing lawyer they may be able to arrange energy assessments given their contacts with long established local assessors
Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Cricklewood conveyancing practitioners have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Co-operative?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Co-operative conducted the valuation? Have you advised Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Bank of Ireland. Is it usual for Bank of Ireland to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Cricklewood is approved on their conveyancing panel? Bank of Ireland have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Bank of Ireland to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I have justbeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Cricklewood for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to check if the property is registered to you, 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 Cricklewood conveyancing specialists.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Cricklewood is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Cricklewood are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Cricklewood you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cricklewood may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
Am I better off to use a Cricklewood conveyancing practitioner based in the vicinity that I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can execute the legal formalities however his firm is located over three hundred miles drive away.
The primary upside of using a local Cricklewood conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust used your friend and the majority were happy that must surpass using an unknown Cricklewood conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being round the corner.
My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Cricklewood. Conveyancing and National Westminster Bank mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1991. The conveyancing solicitor in Cricklewood who previously acted has long since retired. Any advice?
First contact the Land Registry to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Cricklewood conveyancing solicitor to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without getting anywhere. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such issues? Can you recommend a Cricklewood conveyancing firm to help?
You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Cricklewood conveyancing firm who can help.
