Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hammersmith

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Hammersmith is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s work?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack 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 Hammersmith conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

Me and my partner are due to complete buying a house in Hammersmith but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the current proprietors of three thousand pounds taking the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement but Aldermore will not agree to this. Should they have been notified?

Your lawyer that is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is obliged to advise Aldermore of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to notify the reduction to Aldermore then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Aldermore and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Hammersmith.
