Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Barnet

We chose a high street lawyer for my conveyancing in East Barnet recently. After carefully reading the Terms I seewe are responsible for charges even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I go with them or use an on-line firm advertising no move no charge conveyancing in East Barnet?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to cover the cases that do not proceed. Also remember that such arrangements tend not to protect you from outlay such as East Barnet conveyancing search costs.

I have a 4 bedroom Victorian house in East Barnet. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in East Barnet and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in East Barnet. 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 legal work.

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

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Please supply a car parking plan. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in East Barnet prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may refuse to grant a loan on such a house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions from Halifax. If you contact us we can look into this further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in East Barnet. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

My father-in-law has urged me to use his lawyers for conveyancing in East Barnet. Should I use them?

There are no two ways about it the best way to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to seek recommendations from friends or family who have used the conveyancer you're are thinking of instructing.

I have appointed a East Barnet conveyancing solicitor for our home move (FTB’s) and have spotted in the Ts and Cs that they are not governed by the FCA. Need I be worried or is that standard with solicitor?

We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancing practitioner don't lend money. They will be regulated by the SRA, who dictate strict obligations covering funds sitting by them.
