I am not in a position to travel far from Hampton Hill. I would like to know the logic why all Hampton Hill lawyers aren't included on all bank panels?
Even though it may seem unfair for banks to limit who can act for them, from the public’s or lawyer’s viewpoint, the other side of the coin is that banks are increasingly anxious and feel it vital to defend themselves against illegal activities. As a result of this concern mortgage companies are limiting their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a manageable size.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Hampton Hill?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Hampton Hill. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Hampton Hill I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Hampton Hill in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
Do I need to be concerned by third parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a national conveyancing firm rather than a local Hampton Hill conveyancing firm?
As with lots of professional services, often recommendations from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may suggest lawyers to appoint. On occasion the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to choose your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that the majority of mortgage providers operate an approved list of law firms you have to use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.

I acquired a property in Hampton Hill last 28/9/2018 and to date it is still not recorded with HMLR. It was part of a development site and my conveyancer told me that it may take 12 months to complete the registration formalities. I have spoken with HM Land Registry directly and they say that the original application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Do I need to be concerned?
