Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Hackney conveyancing searches.

What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Hackney

Do not opt for the lowest Hackney conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Have just purchased a repossessed house at auction in Hackney. Conveyancing is necessary. What are my next steps?

Given that you have now legally bound yourself to purchase you will need to instruct a conveyancing practitioner quickly as you now have a fast approaching deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. An auction property will have a bespoke legal pack. This will include evidence of title and search results. If you have purchased leasehold property the legal papers may contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork specific to leasehold premises. You need to pass this on to your appointed conveyancing solicitor at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete on the date specified in the contract.

We previously selected conveyancing lawyers locally in Hackney on the Barclays solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further amount for dealing with the Barclays mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Barclays?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Barclays but by your Hackney property lawyer. Some firms on the Barclays panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of firms include it on their overall fee.

About to purchase a new build apartment in Hackney. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hackney

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. 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. 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.
