As someone not used to conveyancing in Edmonton what’s your top tip you can give me concerning the home moving process in Edmonton

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Edmonton or throughout North London is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for conflict between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, estate agent and on occasion your mortgage company. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Edmonton should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the transaction whose interest is to act in your best interests and to protect you.

There is a worrying creep in the "blame" culture- someone has to be at fault for the process being so protracted. You should always trust your conveyancer above all other players in the conveyancing process.

four months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Edmonton took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Edmonton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Edmonton approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Edmonton typically acquire the site, 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 conveyancers 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 Edmonton or who has acted in the same development.

I have been pointed in your direction by two or three local selling agents in Edmonton to choose a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your services over another?

We don’t give any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I have just discovered that one of the partners of the solicitors handling the purchase conveyancing in Edmonton is an aunty of the seller. Is this permitted?

Provided no conflict arises this is allowable. Where you are obtaining a home loan then the mortgage company may have a say as many lenders have specific instructions on this. For example for RBS - Virgin One as of 17/11/2019, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

No, your firm may not act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower. However, your firm may act if a separate fee earner or separate partner within the firm acts for us.
