Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ham

Souldappointing a Ham conveyancing practice make the home moving process easier?

Ham is a unique place, where regional know-how is a big bonus. The laid-back lifestyle is great – just not for your house move. The property lawyers that we work with combine exhaustive Ham knowledge with a professional, hands-onapproach that ensures everything runs smoothly. It is a distinct advantage where they benefit from established relationships with mortgage brokers, estate agents, valuers and other Ham conveyancing firms

In the event thatI was to purchase a straightforward homein Ham for cash and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Ham?

The sole saving you would make on is the Ham conveyancing searches. A lawyer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the vendors solicitor, stamp duty return, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge however it will not be meaningful.

The Ham conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my house acquisition in Ham have suddenly shut down. They were on acting for me because I needed a lawyer on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel and my previous Ham lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What do I do now?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know immediately so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers may be able to assist.

We are planning to move home in September. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Ham. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your page.

On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from the property agent however this should only take place when the sellers conveyancers confirm to the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you should inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal company but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Ham or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Ham.

is it true that all Ham conveyancing solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the firms would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

I have instructed a Ham property lawyer having checked that they are on the Principality conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Ham postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Principality, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Ham.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Ham is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Ham are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ham may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

My cousin has urged me to instruct his conveyancing solicitors in Ham. Should I use them?

There are no two ways about it the ideal way to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to seek feedback from friends or family who have used the solicitor you're considering.
