I can't travel far from Gunnersbury. Can you please spell out why all Gunnersbury conveyancing practitioners are not on all lender panels?
Pre- 2008 most banks demonstrated an attitude to risk which is different than today. The financial regulator in 2010 carried out a thematic review into property fraud which concluded: know the property lawyers on your panel. Accordingly, lenders have since looked to extract more data from law firms concerning their processes and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Many firms have been removed from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms found it impossible satisfy the criteria of volume of transactions the lenders required.
This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a 1st time purchaser of a garden flat in Gunnersbury. Do I pick up the keys to the house on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Gunnersbury?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Gunnersbury. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the owner’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
is it true that all Gunnersbury solicitor firms on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many banks do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be overseen by the CLC.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Lloyds are being pedantic. The Gunnersbury solicitor who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Lloyds are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Lloyds have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Lloyds have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Lloyds may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Do commercial conveyancing searches disclose proposed roadworks that could impact a commercial premises in Gunnersbury?
Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Gunnersbury will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Gunnersbury.

How does conveyancing in Gunnersbury differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Gunnersbury approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Gunnersbury typically acquire 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 Gunnersbury or who has acted in the same development.
