I am searching for value for money property lawyer. Do I opt for a web based conveyancer rather than a high street Finchley conveyancing solicitor?
Established third party relationships are another important factor to consider when choosing conveyancing lawyers. Finchley conveyancers enjoy connections with financial advisers and Finchley, local authorities, surveyors and other law firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Possessing specialist knowledge of the local area is an advantage.
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Finchley? Why is this being asked of me?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Finchley conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill evidencing where you live.
In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancing solicitors are duty bound to investigate not only the ID of conveyancing clients but also the source of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this may result in your solicitor cancelling their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers are duty bound to make a disclosure to the appropriate authorities should they believe that any monies received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.
I am purchasing a new build house in Finchley with a mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it will put at risk my loan with Yorkshire Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Finchley is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Finchley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Finchley you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Finchley 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 residence.

As co-executor for the will of my grandmother I am selling a property in Cardiff but live in Finchley. My conveyancer (who is 260 miles awayhas requested that I sign a stat dec before the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Finchley who can witness and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you should not be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Finchley based
