Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Enfield Lock

I am progressing with the sale of my apartment in Enfield Lock and the estate agent has just e-mailed to warn that the buyers are changing their property lawyer. I am told that this is due to the fact that the bank will only deal with property lawyers on their conveyancing panel. On what basis would a big named lender only deal with certain solicitors rather the firm that they want to select for their conveyancing in Enfield Lock ?

Lenders have always had an approved set of law firms that can act for them, but in the last few years big names such as Santander, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for many years.

Mortgage companies blame a rise in fraud by way of justification for the pruning – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. Banks tend not to disclose how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is hearing daily from firms that have been removed from panels. Some do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your buyers are unlikely to have any sway in the decision.

Having sold my house in Enfield Lock last September yet the purchaser is e-mailing me to moan that his lawyer is waiting to hear from myconveyancer. What are the post completion sale formalities following completion?

Following your sale your conveyancer is duty bound to forward the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Depending on the transaction, your conveyancer should also evidence that the home loan has been redeemed to the purchasers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion steps unique to conveyancing in Enfield Lock.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The lawyers who conducted the conveyancing in Enfield Lock 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my options?

Gone are the days when you need to have the physical official documentation to evidence that you own the land or premises, given that the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Enfield Lock I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Enfield Lock suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for leasehold conveyancing in Enfield Lock. I have land on a web site which appears to be the perfect answer If it is possible to get all formalities done via email that would be preferable. Should I 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?

My brother is buying a basement flat in Enfield Lock. He was given a quote by the property lawyer recommended by the estate agents totaling £1275 . It was 7 years ago I sold and purchased a property and the fee was £495. Have charges really escalated to that extent?

What does the conveyancing estimate include? Is it just for the legal fees, or what you will be paying in total (for instance Enfield Lock searches, land registry fees, etc)
