Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harlington

My wife and I are acquiring a brand new apartment in Harlington and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the developer. I am on a tight deadline to exchange contracts and my preference is not to delay the conveyancing. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

What is the first thing I need to know about purchase conveyancing in Harlington?

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Harlington or throughout North London is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for conflict between you and others involved in the transaction. For example, the vendor, property agent and on occasion the bank. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Harlington should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the legal process whose responsibility is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.

Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will attempt to persuade you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your conveyancer is slow. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do take action that is against your lawyers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.

We previously selected conveyancing lawyers located in Harlington on the Yorkshire BS solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a further fee for the legal aspects of the Yorkshire BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Yorkshire BS?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancer is entitled to charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Yorkshire BS but by your Harlington property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

I have paid off my mortgage with Barclays. I assume I don't need a Harlington property lawyer on the Barclays panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Barclays mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Barclays mortgage from the register. Barclays, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Barclays has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Barclays has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Barclays mortgage has been paid off.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Harlington property lawyer having made sure that they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Virgin Money will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Virgin Money 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. You may wish to consider appointing your own Harlington surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

The deeds to my home are lost. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Harlington 5 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your ownership will be recorded by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and get up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally hold a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for twenty pounds.
