Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Earls Court

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Earls Court is not listed on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?

That is more than likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should contact the Earls Court conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

Where you are under time constraints for your conveyancing it is advisable to make sure that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will benefit local relationships and know-how. It is possible that they would have handled otherproperties in the same street. You would be best advised to use a Earls Court conveyancing lawyer.

It is claimed that just under twenty per cent of Earls Court conveyancing transactions are frustrated or jeopardised after finding out that a purchaser’s solicitor was not on their banks member panel. This can often result in the conveyancing being delayed by as much as three weeks. It is understood that this issue affects in the region of 100,000 home moves annually.

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your ownership will be held by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, find your house and order up to date copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally hold a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for twenty pounds.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Earls Court I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Earls Court for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I'm converting the mortgage on my current home to a BTL mortgage with National Westminster Bank and intend to use the remaining equity as a deposit on another house.

Do use our search tool on this page to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panels. Having checked that they are the solicitor will be able to connect the two deals but you should talk with you conveyancer and communicate your desired outcome and needs.

As co-executor for the will of my aunt I am disposing of a property in Neath but I am based in Earls Court.
