Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Edmonton

My best friend’s step-father is a conveyancing practitioner. I anticipate that I'll be able to get friends and family fee for conveyancing, However if that does not come materialise, what kind of figure would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Edmonton?

It’s wise to look for 3 or more like-for-like conveyancing estimates. Make use of our search tool on this site. Whilst fees may contrast greatly but the service one can expect differ between conveyancers as is true with most professions.

I sincerely hope you can assist me. My Edmonton conveyancer is informing me me that he has toapply for Edmonton conveyancing searches stemming from the fact thatthe firm are on the Virgin Moneyconveyancing panel. These Edmonton checks cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Edmonton conveyancing searches.

we are a couple who are buying a purpose built flat in Edmonton with a homeloan from Chelsea Building Society.We use our Edmonton conveyancing solicitor but Chelsea Building Society advised that his firm is not listed on their approved list of firms. we are left little option but to use a Chelsea Building Society panel solicitor or retain our local solicitor and pay for a Chelsea Building Society panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that lawyers will be on the Chelsea Building Society solicitor panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Chelsea Building Society

Should my lawyer be making enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Edmonton.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Edmonton. There are those who acquire a house in Edmonton, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that can be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better understanding of the risks in Edmonton. The standard property information forms sent to a buyer’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard question of the seller to discover whether the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a purchaser could bring a claim for damages resulting from an misleading response. A purchaser’s solicitors will also conduct an environmental report. This will disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be conducted.

I have a renovated Victorian house in Edmonton. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Bank of Ireland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Edmonton and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

As co-executor for the will of my father I am disposing of a house in Swansea but I am based in Edmonton. My solicitor (who is 200 miles from mehas requested that I sign a statutory declaration before completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Edmonton to witness this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you should not need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Edmonton based
