Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Ham

Recently contacted my conveyancing lawyer in East Ham who acted for me two years ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of house move (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a loan from The Royal Bank of Scotland. I am now being charged twice the amount. Better the devil I know or do I seek out a cheaper internet property lawyer?

Are all East Ham Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing list of approved firms?

It is true that some banks and building societies now make use of the accreditation scheme as the kick off 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 approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, RBS are being problematic. The East Ham solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but RBS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

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

I have instructed a East Ham property lawyer having made sure that they are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Aldermore will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Aldermore will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your East Ham postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Aldermore, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in East Ham.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in East Ham 10 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?

It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your property and order current copies of the property title for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for £20 inclusive of VAT.

How does conveyancing in East Ham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in East Ham contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in East Ham typically purchase 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 East Ham or who has acted in the same development.

On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the Court. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to track down the freeholder. On the whole a specialist would be helpful to try and locate and to produce an expert document which can be accepted by the court as proof that the freeholder can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer both on proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing East Ham.
