We went with a Hillingdon based firm for our conveyancing in Hillingdon today. After carefully reading the terms of engagement it is apparent thatwe are liable for charges even if the dealdoes not proceed. Would I be best advised to choose a web based lawyer advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Hillingdon?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to neutralise the transactions that abort. You should be mindful that such promotions tend not to cover expenditure such as Hillingdon conveyancing search fees.
My husband and I are buying a newly constructed duplex in Hillingdon and my solicitor is informing me that she is duty bound to the lender to reveal incentives from the seller. I am under pressure to exchange and my preference is not to delay the conveyancing. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Hillingdon. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be caught by that. many lenders would take a practical view as this obligation primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the flipping of property.
Can I be sure that the Hillingdon conveyancing solicitor on the Barclays panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Hillingdon seeking recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Hillingdon I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hillingdon for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
