Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Fishponds

I am purchasing a leasehold flat in Fishponds. My lawyer is not listed on the bank approved list. Can I still appoint my Fishponds conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the bank list of approved lawyers?

Various options include

  • Complete the purchase with your chosen Fishponds lawyer but your mortgage company will undoubtedly appoint a property lawyer from their conveyancing panel. This will result in additional charges and likely interruption.
  • Appoint a fresh property lawyer to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the bank conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your solicitor to do everything possible to get listed on the mortgage company panel of solicitors

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home can not be found. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Fishponds 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?

Gone are the days when you need to hold title deeds to establish that you are the registered proprietor of land or premises, given that the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Fishponds I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Fishponds in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

I was pointed in your direction by a few property agents in Fishponds to find a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t offer any commission for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent told us that the vendor will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's chosen conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Fishponds

It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Fishponds conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will provide the estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by senior management.

Our offer on detached house in Fishponds was accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing lawyer in Fishponds. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance going with Kent Reliance?

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Fishponds conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your conveyancer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many buyers would apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and pay for the survey and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Fishponds.
