Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Holland Park

Do the conveyancing solicitors identified via your search tool execute auction conveyancing in Holland Park?

There are a number of auction lawyers we can put you in touch with those specialising in auction conveyancing. Holland Park is just one of the many areas of where our lawyers are based.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel solicitor as I would prefer to instruct a Holland Park based conveyancing firm?

Do check but the chances are that give you one of their panel lawyers where you accept the "fee-free" offer. Contact the mortgage company to see if they allow a monetary alternative. Some banks have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Holland Park.

I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Holland Park. The Holland Park property was put into my name in September. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in September. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires 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. Most mortgage companies would take a practical view as this requirement is primarily there to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

Is it the case that all Holland Park CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Santander conveyancing list of approved solicitors?

A selection of banks and building societies now utilise CQS as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. 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 remain on their panels.

I recently had an offer accepted on an apartment in Holland Park. My mortgage broker suggested a lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £175. Not long after, the conveyancing practitioner contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the UBS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the UBS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

five months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Holland Park took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

We're FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the property agent advised that the seller will only proceed if we use their chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Holland Park

We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to use your own,trusted Holland Park conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will earn their estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.

My partner and I have AIP from Skipton Building Society who said that they will lend up to £300k. At what point do I need to appoint a solicitor for conveyancing? Holland Park is where we are buying.

You can appoint a conveyancing practitioner now so that the conveyancer can open the file so they can commence their ID checks etc. Once you wish them to commence work they will seek a payment on account normally about £175. That should generally be after you have the loan offer from the lender and valuation back, but if you wish to speed matters you can start the ball rolling quicker albeit risking some money.
