Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Grove Park

My wife and I are planning to acquire a house in Grove Park and are in fact using a Grove Park conveyancing firm. Within the past 48 hours our conveyancer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with a view to exchanging next week. The Mortgage Works have this morning contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Grove Park lawyer is not on their conveyancing panel. Please explain?

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is standard for the purchasers' lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your mortgage company and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Grove Park solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.

I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must leave my let out apartment in Grove Park by 1/8/2024. Conveyancing for my house purchase is progressing. Is it possible to complete in a couple of weeks as don't want to have to find temporary accommodation?

It is unwise to serve notice for your letting unless exchange of contracts has taken place. If you have not previously done so, update to your conveyancer and urge them to they chase the owners solicitors, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will aim to achieve

Finally the sale completed on my house in Grove Park last July yet the purchaser is e-mailing daily complaining that his solicitor needs to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done following completion?

After completion of your disposal your conveyancer should forward the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. If applicable, your lawyer should also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the buyers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion formalities specific conveyancing in Grove Park.

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to execute a search at the Land Registry, find your property and order current copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for a small fee.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Grove Park I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Grove Park for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
