Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Earlsfield

Is there a reason to use a Earlsfield conveyancing firm when web based conveyancers are easier on the wallet?

Its a good idea to get 2 or 3 like-for-like quotes for conveyancing costs in Earlsfield and you should seek a competitive estimate but don’t become consumed with sourcing the cheapest Earlsfield conveyancer. Locating the right conveyancer can mark the difference between a seamless and a distressing house move. You need to ensure that you have expert advice from an experienced solicitor. An e-mail can never take the place of a phone call and are no substitute for a one to one meeting. Our partner firms will find you a qualified and trusted conveyancing solicitor who can deal with your conveyancing from beginning to end, giving the sort of continuity that you will never get with an online conveyancer. He or She will contact you regularly to update you on any developments and keep you informed. If you ever need to call the firm you will be sure who you need to speak to and they will ensure you're not left wondering what's going on.

The sellers of the property we are hoping to buy are using a conveyancing solicitor in Earlsfield who has insisted on a exclusivity agreement with a deposit two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are two main concerns with executing a lock out contract (sometimes known as a no-shop agreement) is that it diverts attention away from making progress with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing limited or no negotiation then it may transpire to be unhelpful. It is not promoted amongst Earlsfield conveyancing solicitors as a result. A further concern is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is not likely to obtain an injunctive ruling by a court to prohibit the owner disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the recovery of abortive costs and, in limited situations, the extra payment of damages.

How does conveyancing in Earlsfield differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Earlsfield approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because new home sellers in Earlsfield tend to buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Earlsfield or who has acted in the same development.

Am I right to be suspicious that estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Earlsfield conveyancing firm?

As is the case with many professional services, often referrals from relatives can be very helpful. Nevertheless there are lots of players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all put forward conveyancers to select. On occasion the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there exists a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the right to appoint your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that most mortgage providers specify a panel list of law firms you are obliged to use for the mortgage related work in your conveyancing.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Earlsfield. Conveyancing and Barnsley Building Society mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing solicitor in Earlsfield who previously acted has now retired. Do I pay?

First contact HMLR to be sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. There is no need to incur the fees of a Earlsfield conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such issues? Can you recommend a Earlsfield conveyancing firm to assist?

Most certainly. We can put you in touch with a Earlsfield conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Earlsfield residence is 35 Trewint Street in February 2012. The Tribunal arrived at a premium of £32 425 for the freehold reversion. The matter was transferred back to the court for further consideration which required the applicants pay the premium (less any assessed costs) into court after which the court would execute a transfer of the freehold. This case was in relation to 2 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 70.57 years.

A loan agreement from a bank for the remortgage of my 2 bedroom apartment is due any day now. Are you able to recommend a cheap remortgage conveyancing practitioner in Earlsfield ?
