Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harlington

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Harlington? What am I being asked for?

It is indeed that case that the requirement set out by your solicitor has nothing to do with conveyancing in Harlington. However these days you can not proceed with any conveyancing deal in the absence supplying proof of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence as well as a bank statement. Please note that if you are providing your driving licence as proof of identification it needs to be both the paper element and photo card part, one is not sufficient in the absence of the other.

Proof of your origin of money is required in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations. Please do not be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancing solicitor will need to have this information on record. Your Harlington conveyancing practitioner will require evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any monies from you into their client account and they may also ask additional questions concerning the origin of funds.

My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Harlington. I need to find out if they are accepted on the Barnsley Building Society conveyancing panel. Could you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

The first thing to do is e-mail the lawyer and enquire whether they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you should call Barnsley Building Society who may be able to assist.

We had instructed conveyancing lawyers locally in Harlington on the Lloyds solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further fee for the legal aspects of the Lloyds mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Lloyds?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer may levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Lloyds but by your Harlington property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Lloyds panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.

After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Harlington. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an on account payment of £225. Soon after, the conveyancer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Nottingham 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 Nottingham 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.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Harlington. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Harlington lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Harlington is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Harlington are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Harlington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Harlington may decide 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 premises.

How do I use the search tool to locate a conveyancing lawyer in Harlington on the authorised to act for my bank?

Step one is to pick a bank such as Yorkshire Building Society, Skipton Building Society or TSB then type in your location e.g. Harlington. Conveyancing firms in Harlington and further afield should be shown.

I have had difficulty in trying to purchase the freehold in Harlington. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Harlington conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Harlington property is 164 Nestles Avenue in October 2013. The tribunal agreed with the proposed price of £20,158 for the freehold and determined that that sum is the amount to be paid into court This case was in relation to 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 69 years.

What makes a Harlington lease unmortgageable?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Harlington. All leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are erroneous. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    A provision to repair to or maintain elements of the premises A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.

You could have a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Nationwide Building Society, Bank of Scotland, and Nottingham Building Society all have express conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, obliging the buyer to pull out.
