Please could you vouch for a Yorkshire Building Society accepted Finchley conveyancing practice that can complete within a short deadline? Am I best advised to choose a local Finchley solicitor or a web based firm?
We can recommend some very good Finchley conveyancing firms. You can also walk up the high street in Finchley. Approach two or three law practices and request to speak with a conveyancing solicitor for a quote. Mention your time frames together with the reasons and ask for a commitment on speed. Appoint the lawyer that appears most efficient.
I purchased a freehold residence in Finchley but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Finchley and has limited impact for conveyancing in Finchley but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of new rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.
I am assisting my step-mother sell her flat in Finchley. Does the solicitor arrange the energy performance certificate or it is for the owner to see to?
Following the demise of Home Information Packs, energy assessments remained a compulsory part of selling a property. An EPC must be commissioned before the property is advertised. It is not something that law firms normally arrange. Where you are instructing a Finchley conveyancing lawyer they may be able to arrange EPC’s due to their relationships with long established local energy assessors
We expect to receive a DIP from HSBC this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do HSBC recommend any Finchley solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Finchley solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the HSBC conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and HSBC through the process.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Finchley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Finchley conveyancer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.
I'm refinancing my primary home to a buy to let mortgage with Clydesdale and I will use the ballance of the raised equity towards a second house. The neighborhood we are talking about is Finchley. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of mortgage companies and tie in the transactions?
Make use of our search tool on this site to be sure that the lawyers are approved by both banks. Having checked that they are your conveyancer will be able to tie up the two deals but you should talk with you conveyancer and specify your expectations and requirements.
My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we appoint the agent's recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Finchley
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to instruct your preferred Finchley conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by head office.
