Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Havering and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the seller, selling agent and sometimes the mortgage company.

There is a distinct emergence in the "blame" culture- someone must be at fault for the process being so protracted. You should always trust your solicitor ahead of all other players in the home moving process.

I have recentlybecome aware that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Havering for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to check if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Havering conveyancing specialists.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Havering is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Havering are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Havering you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Havering 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.

Am I better off to appoint a Havering conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am buying? We have a good friend who can execute the conveyancing however they are based over three hundred kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a high street Havering conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and on the whole were impressed that must surpass using an unknown Havering conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being round the corner.

We are expecting to complete buying a property in Havering but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have negotiated compensation from the seller of £3k taking the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however my lender will not agree to this. Should they have been approached?

Your conveyancer being on the lender conveyancing panel is required to advise the lender of any changes to the sale amount. If you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to notify the price change to your mortgage company then they would need to disinstructing themselves from representing you and the mortgage company.
