Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hanwell

We selected a local lawyer for my conveyancing in Hanwell yesterday. Reviewing the terms of engagement I seeI am liable for fees even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and use a web based solicitor practice who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Hanwell?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to cover the transactions that do not proceed. Dont forget that such arrangements rarely cover expenditure e.g. Hanwell conveyancing search fees.

Due to move into my new home in Hanwell next Tuesday. My property lawyer now wants me to supply her with evidence of content and building insurance for the property as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the bank. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for mortgage companies would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. These requirements are not limited to conveyancing in Hanwell.

Does a directory service exist listing Skipton panel conveyancers in Hanwell on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of mortgage companies make their panel listings available on the web. Where you are in need of a Hanwell solicitor on the Skipton please use our facility.

I'm in the throws of viewing flats in Hanwell and I am about to put in an offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Barclays.

It would be wise to instigate your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Barclays, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Hanwell. My financial adviser suggested a solicitor. I paid an on account payment of £200. Shortly after, the property lawyer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Coventry BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

My relative advised me that if I am buying in Hanwell I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is usually quoted for as part of the standard Hanwell conveyancing searches.

It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Hanwell Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Hanwell Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Hanwell.

The deeds to my house can not be found. The conveyancers who handled the conveyancing in Hanwell 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?

Gone are the days when you need to hold title deeds to establish that you own the land or property, given that the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.

I am hoping to put an offer on a small detached house that seems to tick a lot of boxes, at a great price which is making it all the more appealing. I have since discovered that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I am assuming that there are issues purchasing a house with a leasehold title in Hanwell. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been appointed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Hanwell ?

Most houses in Hanwell are freehold rather than leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local solicitor used to dealing with such properties who can help the conveyancing process. We note that you are buying in Hanwell in which case you should be looking for a Hanwell conveyancing practitioner and be sure that they have experience in dealing with leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. Being a tenant you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions for example requiring the freeholder’spermission to carry out alterations. You may also be required to pay a service charge towards the maintenance of the estate where the house is located on an estate. Your conveyancer should advise you fully on all the issues.

I inherited a two-bedroom flat in Hanwell. Given that I can not reach agreement with the landlord, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the amount payable for a lease extension?

Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a Hanwell conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Hanwell property is 6 Jessamine Road in August 2013. The Tribunals valuation (as annexed to the decision) calculated the amount payable as £18,355 for the freehold reversion This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 72.39 years.
