I plan on buying an apartment in Crouch End. My lawyer is not on the bank solicitor panel. Can I still retain my Crouch End conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the bank panel?
One will need to appoint a lawyer to complete the legal work required if you need a mortgage to purchase your property. The property lawyer will carry out all the essential investigations on the property, make sure that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is in order. One may instruct a Crouch End conveyancer of your choosing. However, if the property lawyer appointed is not a member of the lender approved list additional fees will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so provided your solicitor has not previously sought membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
My wife and I have recently bought a property in Crouch End. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Crouch End?
The question is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Crouch End. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner completes a questionnaire known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information turns out to be incorrect, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Crouch End.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Crouch End I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Crouch End in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
