Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harmondsworth

My financial adviser says he needs my Harmondsworth lawyer’ panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have e-mailed my local Harmondsworth office but they have not got back to me yet.

You are best placed to get this information from your Harmondsworth solicitor . Most Harmondsworth conveyancing practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.

Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Harmondsworth conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel?

Harmondsworth conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Bank of Ireland directly.

My wife and I are purchasing a house in Harmondsworth. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we have to send funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

I am planning to move home in December. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Harmondsworth. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across this site.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the selling agent but this should only be done once the vendors conveyancers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you should inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you find a conveyancing in Harmondsworth or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Harmondsworth.

We expect to receive a AIP from Lloyds this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Lloyds recommend any Harmondsworth solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Harmondsworth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Lloyds through the process.

I bought my flat on 7 April and my personal details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Harmondsworth expressed confidence that it should be registered inside ten days. Are titles in Harmondsworth particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Harmondsworth is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any third persons or bodies. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration occurs after the purchaser is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not always top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Harmondsworth with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about the extras as it will jeopardize my loan with The Mortgage Works. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Completion is due on the disposal of our £200,000 maisonette in Harmondsworth in seven days. The freeholder has quoted £312 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a flat conveyance in Harmondsworth?

Harmondsworth conveyancing on leasehold apartments more often than not involves the purchaser’s solicitor sending enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer these enquiries most will be willing to assist. They are entitled to invoice a reasonable charge for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some cases it is in excess of £800. The administration charge levied by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the charge is technically not due. Reality however dictates that one has no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.

Notwithstanding our best efforts, we have been unsuccessful in trying to purchase the freehold in Harmondsworth. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

Where there is a absentee landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to assess the price.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Harmondsworth premises 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.
