Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Dalston

There are a variety of conveyancing solicitors in Dalston but how do I know who I should use?

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the cheapest Dalston conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

I am planning to move house in October. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Dalston. Conveyancing solicitor was found prior to coming across this site.

On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from the selling agent however this can only occur when the vendors lawyers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. After that you can inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Dalston or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Dalston.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Clydesdale are being problematic. The Dalston solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Clydesdale are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale 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.

We are planning on selling our house in Dalston and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Dalston. We have lived in Dalston for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I have recentlydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Dalston for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest way to see if the property is in your name, 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 Dalston conveyancing specialists.

I'm buying my first flat in Dalston with a loan from Barclays Direct. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my conveyancer about this side-deal as it could jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Dalston ahead of instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to grant a mortgage on this type of house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Halifax. If you call us we can check via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Dalston. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
