Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Greenford

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Greenford is not identified on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of his work?

That is more than likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Greenford conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

In the event thatI were to purchase a straightforward homein Greenford mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Greenford?

The sole saving you would make on is the disbursement for searches. The property lawyer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the vendors solicitor, SDLT return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge but it won't be meaningful.

I purchased a freehold premises in Greenford but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Greenford and has limited impact for conveyancing in Greenford but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

My friend recommended that where I am buying in Greenford I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

This is a search is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Greenford conveyancing searches. It is a large report of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out significant information about Greenford around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Greenford Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Greenford Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information about Greenford.

Have purchased a a terraced house in Greenford , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my proprietorship? My Greenford conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is concluded.

As far as conveyancing in Greenford is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. At present roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not usually top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
