Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Acton

The owners have very pushy vendors who has suggested a preliminary contract with a payment 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are two main concerns with signing a lock out contract (sometimes termed a no-shop agreement) is that it diverts attention away from moving forward with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a hindrance. It is not particularly popular by East Acton conveyancing lawyers for this reason. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer should not expect to obtain injunctive relief to prohibit the owner selling to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of abortive costs and, in restricted circumstances, the extra payment of damages.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Barclays are being problematic. The East Acton solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Barclays are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

Intending to buy a maisonette in East Acton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the East Acton conveyancing practitioner is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
