Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harold Hill

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Harold Hill. Can you please clarify why all Harold Hill conveyancers aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?

Mortgage Companies tend to impose restrictions on either the nature or volume of conveyancing firms on their panel. A common example of such criteria being that the firm is required to have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some banks for example HSBC decided to limit the size of their panel they use to act for them. You should note that banks have no accountability for the standard of conveyancing supplied by any Harold Hill conveyancer on their approved list. Increases in mortgage fraud was the primary trigger for the rationalisation of solicitor panels from 2008 notwithstanding that there are opposing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics published by the Land Registry indicates that thousands of law organisations only transact one or two conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel culls question why conveyancing firms should have any entitlement to be on a conveyancing panel when it is evident that property law is not their speciality?

I purchased a freehold premises in Harold Hill but still pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Harold Hill and has limited impact for conveyancing in Harold Hill but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

Do I have to visit the offices of the solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Harold Hill so that I can attend their offices if necessary.

These days approved lawyers for banks carry out all of the communications through Royal Mail, internet or over phone calls. This means that they can undertake the conveyancing transaction no matter where you live in England or Wales. Nevertheless you should check if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if just in case this is required.
