Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Dalston

Me and my partner are buying a 1 bedroom flat in Dalston with a mortgage. We have a Dalston lawyer, however the bank advise she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have little choice but to appoint one of the bank panel solicitors or continue with our Dalston solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Dalston conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Dalston? Is this really warranted?

Dalston conveyancing solicitors and indeed property lawyers accross the UK have a duty under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules to verify the ID of any client with a view to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.

Conveyancing clients are required to supply two forms of certified identification; proof of identity (usually a Passport or Driving Licence) and evidence of address (usually a Utility Bill no more than three months).

Evidence of source of funds is also necessary under the money laundering laws as solicitors are required to check that the monies you are utilising to buy a property (whether it be the deposit for exchange or the full purchase amount if you are buying without a mortgage) has come from an acceptable source (such as an inheritance) as opposed to the proceeds of illegitimate activity.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Dalston. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Dalston

    Please supply a car parking plan. 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 confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.

Taking into account that I am about to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a terraced house in Dalston I would like to have a conversation with the lawyer concerning theconveyancing prior to giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Absolutely - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the lawyer due to be conducting your conveyancing in Dalston.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique individual, not a matter reference. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Dalston should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent told us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's chosen conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Dalston

It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Dalston conveyancing firm - as opposed tothe ones that will provide the estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.

My intention is to purchase a ground floor maisonette in Dalston. Conveyancing solicitor is awaiting, from the vendor, building insurance schedule. Earlier today I was informed that the seller must send the insurance documents for the flat above also. Why would my solicitor want to see the insurance for the other flat? Is it strictly required? We have been stalled for the previous 2 weeks…

It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Dalston to find Conveyancing in Dalston in a minority of cases reveals that the lease obliges the tenant's to insure their individual flats rather than the freeholder insuring the entire building - which is clearly preferable. Do check with your conveyancer but it would seem that your conveyancer is seeking to establish that the complete building is insured. Insuring a ground floor residence is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reinstated due to lack of insurance cover.
