We went with a Friern Barnet based firm for our conveyancing in Friern Barnet recently. Going through the Terms it is apparent thatwe are on the hook for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or instruct an internet firm who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Friern Barnet?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to offset those cases that do not proceed. Please beware that these offerings rarely cover expenditure e.g. Friern Barnet conveyancing search expenses.
My partner and I have lately purchased a property in Friern Barnet. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been carried out for conveyancing in Friern Barnet?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Friern Barnet. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner fills in a form referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers provided is incorrect, you could possibly take legal action against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Friern Barnet.
I am due to move house in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Friern Barnet. Conveyancing lawyer was organised before I stumbled across your site.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from your property agent but this should only be done once the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be handed over. You can inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Friern Barnet or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Friern Barnet.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Principality, do Friern Barnet conveyancers have to pay a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?

Lloyds have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a apartment in Friern Barnet has been agreed to, what are the next steps?
The estate agent will want to know who your solicitors are (be sure the conveyancers are on the bank’s approved list). Contact Lloyds or your financial adviser and finalise any appropriate documentation. Lloyds will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to book an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Lloyds will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Friern Barnet.

About to purchase a new build apartment in Friern Barnet. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Friern Barnet
Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.
I am looking for Friern Barnet competitive conveyancing fees. Can I be confident that all the Friern Barnet firms that are identified on your website are on the bank conveyancing panel?
The law firms on our directory have advised us that they are on the lender panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a bank or a member of the public that the data about a specific Friern Barnet firm being on the bank conveyancing panel is not accurate.
