Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cricklewood

Due to move into my new home in Cricklewood next Thursday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the mortgage company. What does the insurance need to cover?

All property lawyers on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 instructions. These obligations are not unique to conveyancing in Cricklewood.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Santander are being difficult. The Cricklewood solicitor who is on the Santander conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Santander are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Santander have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Santander have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Santander may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I had an offer accepted on a house in Cricklewood on 12/2/2020, valuation was booked five days later, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Nottingham and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Are Nottingham entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nottingham to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Cricklewood I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Cricklewood for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I am in the market for a responsive conveyancing lawyer in Cricklewood to help me sell my apartment. I I am fearful of appointing the wrong one and there are so many Cricklewood conveyancing organisations out there...how do I know which one is best to select?
