Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hillingdon

I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for hinderance in Hillingdon conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Hillingdon.

How does conveyancing in Hillingdon differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Hillingdon approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Hillingdon usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Hillingdon or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Hillingdon before instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Nationwide. Should you wish to telephone us we can check with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Hillingdon. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Hillingdon to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

I have been recommended by a number of property agents in Hillingdon to choose a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your lawyers rather than another?

We don’t make any financial incentive for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to choosing a Hillingdon conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Hillingdon conveyancing firm) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We recommend that you speak with two or three firms including non Hillingdon conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be helpful:

    How experienced is the firm with lease extension legislation?

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such issues? Can you recommend a Hillingdon conveyancing firm to represent me?

You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Hillingdon conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Hillingdon property 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.

We had our home loan agreed in principle yesterday with our lender. We instructed a high street conveyancer in Hillingdon yesterday. Today, our broker contacted us saying that the lender said that we cannot use our solicitor as they aren't on their 'approved list'. As FTB's, we had no idea that the lender had a say Is this allowed?

You can actually appoint any conveyencer you want to select including the said conveyancer in Hillingdon however if your lender aren't happy with them you will have to pay an extra fee so the mortgage company can instruct their own lawyers. sometimes it is possible your preferred conveyancing firm to get included on to the mortgage company list of approved firms.
