Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Twickenham

My partner and I are refinancing our penthouse in East Twickenham with HSBC. We have a son approaching twenty who lives with us. Our solicitor requested us to identify any adults other than ourselves who reside at the property. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the property is repossessed. I have a couple of concerns (1) Is this form unique to the HSBC conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we bought 3 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise his rights to inherit the property?

On the face of it your lawyer has done nothing wrong as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to HSBC. This is solely used to protect HSBC if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of HSBC had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.

I have paid off my mortgage with Bank of Ireland. I assume I don't need a East Twickenham conveyancer on the Bank of Ireland panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Bank of Ireland mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Bank of Ireland mortgage from the register. Bank of Ireland, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Bank of Ireland has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Bank of Ireland has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Bank of Ireland mortgage has been paid off.

I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in East Twickenham. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £150. Soon after, the conveyancer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Principality conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Principality panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in East Twickenham. 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 conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in East Twickenham

    Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. 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 the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

Should I be suspicious about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street East Twickenham conveyancing company?

As with many professional services, often recommendations from connections can be most helpful. Nevertheless there are numerous players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders might all suggest lawyers to appoint. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to choose your own conveyancer. Don't forget that the majority of lenders specify a panel list of conveyancers you have to use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for residential conveyancing in East Twickenham. I have land on a web site which seems to have the ideal answer If there is a chance to get all the legals done via web that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
