AssumingI was to acquire a freehold propertyin Edgware for cash and have no survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Edgware?
Any savings you would make would be isolated to the Edgware conveyancing searches. A solicitor still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with the sellers conveyancer, SDLT submission, register the title etc. A marginal saving might be made by not needing to register a charge but it will not be meaningful.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Edgware is more expensive?
Edgware leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.
My lawyer in Edgware is not on the Barclays Direct Conveyancing Panel. Can I still use my prefered solicitor even though they are not on the Barclays Direct panel?
The limited options available to you here include:
- Carry on with your preferred Edgware lawyers but Barclays Direct will need to instruct a lawyer on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the total legal fees as well as cause frustration.
- Choose a new solicitor to act in the conveyancing, not forgetting to check they are Barclays Direct approved.
- Persuade your Barclays Direct based solicitor to seek to join the Barclays Direct panel
Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Edgware. Conveyancing is required. What is next?
Given that you have now exchanged you will need to appoint a conveyancing practitioner quickly as you will have a pending deadline in which to complete the transaction. An auction property will ordinarily have a bespoke auction set of papers. This should include evidence of title and search results. If you have purchased leasehold premises the legal papers should provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation specific to a leasehold property. You need to hand this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding organised to complete on the on the contractual date .

Clydesdale have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a apartment in Edgware has been accepted, what happens next?
The property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (make sure the property lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Call up Clydesdale or your financial adviser and finalise any outstanding documentation. Clydesdale will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to book an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a week to get a mortgage offer. Clydesdale will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Edgware.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Edgware is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Edgware are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Edgware you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Edgware 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.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Edgware. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Edgware - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
