Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crouch End

My partner and I are looking to purchase a flat in Crouch End and have instructed a Crouch End conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our lawyer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through with the expectation that exchange is imminent. Nationwide Building Society have this morning contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Crouch End solicitor is not on their approved list of lawyers. What do we do from here?

Where you are buying a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is conventional for the purchasers' solicitors to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your mortgage company and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Crouch End lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.

I have recentlybecome aware that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Crouch End for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

The quickest way to see if the property is registered to you, you can make 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 Crouch End conveyancing specialists.

About to purchase a new build flat in Crouch End. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Crouch End

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Crouch End is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Crouch End are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Crouch End you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Crouch End 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 property.

My step-father purchased his flat in Crouch End ten years ago. He has got married, divorced and is now married again. He will be selling the property in a few weeks. I believe he will simply be asked to provide a copy of his marriage certificates to the lawyer however he is concerned it could hold up the sale of the property. Should he appoint a property lawyer to update the Land Registry information for the house?

It is not absolutely necessary to update the title for the property on the basis that you have the evidence needed to show how the change of name occurred.

The buyer’s lawyer will check the title details and request evidence to prove the name change for example marriage certificates.
