This question may be naive but I am new to the home moving as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Finsbury Park. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Finsbury Park?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the owner’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be invited to pick up the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.
When it comes to lenders such as Kent Reliance, do Finsbury Park solicitors face an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are unaware of any lender fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Finsbury Park. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
I bought my flat on 7 January and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Finsbury Park advises it should be recorded inside ten days. Are transfers in Finsbury Park particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Finsbury Park is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not typically an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Finsbury Park differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Finsbury Park approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because developers in Finsbury Park tend to buy 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Finsbury Park or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Finsbury Park I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Finsbury Park in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
