Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harold Hill

Last January we completed a house move in Harold Hill. We have noticed several issues with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Harold Hill?

The query is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Harold Hill. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a property owner fills in a document called a SPIF. answers is misleading, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Harold Hill.

I am aiming to move house in June. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Harold Hill. Conveyancing lawyer was found prior to coming across this website.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from your selling agent but this can only happen when the sellers conveyancers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected.

Is it the case that all Harold Hill CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the UBS conveyancing panel?

Some major banks and building societies now use CQS as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their panels.

Santander have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a property in Harold Hill has been agreed to, now what?

The estate agent will want to be advised as to your solicitor's details (make sure the property lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Call up Santander or the broker and finalise any appropriate documentation. Santander will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or vendor to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week to get a mortgage offer. Santander will send the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Harold Hill.

I bought my home on 5 February and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Harold Hill advises it should be concluded in less than a month. Are properties in Harold Hill particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Harold Hill registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs after the new owner is living at the property thus 'speed' is not always an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Harold Hill is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Harold Hill are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Harold Hill you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Harold Hill may ascertain 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'm converting the mortgage on my primary home to a BTL loan with Virgin Money and intend to use the remaining equity as a down payment on a second property. The area we are looking at is Harold Hill. Will your conveyancers be able to act for the two banks and link together the conveyances?

Do use our comparison tool on this page to be sure that the solicitors are approved by both lenders. On the basis that they are the lawyer will be able to connect the two deals but you should have a chat with you conveyancer and communicate your expectations and requirements.

Is it legal for a freeholder to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Harold Hill?

For most leasehold sales in Harold Hill conveyancing will involve, questions about the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Addressing pre-contract questions Where consent is required before sale in Harold Hill Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Harold Hill leasehold property is £350. For Harold Hill conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to supply answers.

I am the registered owner of a second floor flat in Harold Hill. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal make a decision on the amount payable for a lease extension?
