Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Holborn

Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Holborn?

If you are buying a property in Holborn your lawyer will request that you place them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Generally this is requested to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any deposit is payable against the purchase price then this will be required immediately ahead of exchange of contracts. Any further balance that is needed should be sent to your lawyer a few days ahead of the day of completion.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a first time buyer of a garden flat in Holborn. Do I pick up the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Holborn?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be called to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

Can I be sure that the Holborn conveyancing solicitor on the Principality panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Holborn seeking recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always suggest that you speak with the lawyer handling your conveyancing.

My partner and I have organised the release of further funds on our home loan from RBS as we want to conduct a loft conversion to our house in Holborn. Do we need to choose a bricks and mortar Holborn solicitor on the RBS conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

RBS don't usually require firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the RBS panel.

Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Holborn , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Holborn conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my ownership is registered.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Holborn registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property so an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

What does commercial conveyancing in Holborn cover?

Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of tenancies.
