Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Dulwich

I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and must be out of my rented property in Dulwich by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase has just started. Is it possible to complete in 5 weeks as don't want to have to move into short term accommodation?

Generally one should not give notice on a rental until your lawyer suggests that you should. If you have not already done so, contact to your conveyancer and ask them to they seek the assistance the other solicitors, try to get a realistic time scale from them that all parties will aim to achieve

The Dulwich conveyancing lawyers that I recently instructed on my purchase in Dulwich have suddenly shut down. I only went with them because I had to have a lawyer on the Barclays conveyancing panel and my preferred Dulwich lawyer was not. I issued them a cheque for £250 in advance. What are my options?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Barclays conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to assist.

Have completed on a a detached house in Dulwich , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Dulwich conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check that my name is recorded.

As far as conveyancing in Dulwich registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. At present approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the property thus 'speed' is not always top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I opted to have a survey completed on a house in Dulwich before appointing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks may not give a loan on such a premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can look into this further with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Dulwich. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Dulwich especially if they are acquainted with such properties in Dulwich.
