Is the fact that my conveyancer in East Finchley is not identified on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 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. If you are concerned you should simply call the East Finchley conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

Is it the case that all East Finchley CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel?

Some major banks and building societies now utilise the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their panels.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. East Finchley is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in East Finchley are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside East Finchley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in East Finchley may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

My uncle has suggested that I appoint his conveyancing solicitors in East Finchley. Do I follow his advice?

Much as we are happy to recommend a East Finchley conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to have referrals from friends or family who have actually previously instructed the solicitor that you are contemplating using.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a East Finchley property is Ground Floor 110 Station Road in June 2013. The Tribunal found that the premium payable for a lease extension should be £31,665. This case related to 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 56.65 years.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in East Finchley what are the most frequent lease defects?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in East Finchley. Most leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage

You will encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. National Westminster Bank, Coventry Building Society, and TSB all have express conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, obliging the buyer to withdraw.
