I am getting a mortgage offer from Nat West. I would like to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Finchley. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?
The Nat West conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
How does conveyancing in Finchley differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Finchley approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in Finchley usually acquire the land, 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 Finchley or who has acted in the same development.

I am attracted to a couple of apartments in Finchley both have about forty five years left on the lease term. should I be concerned?
A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As the lease gets shorter the saleability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more costly to extend the lease. For this reason it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.
