My husband and I are purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Harmondsworth with a mortgage. We have a Harmondsworth lawyer, but the bank says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or keep our Harmondsworth solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; can we not insist that the bank use our Harmondsworth property lawyer ?
No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Harmondsworth conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Harmondsworth is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Harmondsworth are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Harmondsworth you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Harmondsworth 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 property.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Harmondsworth. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Harmondsworth - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
Following months of negotiations we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Harmondsworth. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
