What happens if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the HSBC Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Homerton?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

A colleague informed me that in buying a property in Homerton there may be various restrictions preventing external changes to a property. Is this right?

There are anumerous of properties in Homerton which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Homerton should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

My lawyer has informed me that lack of planning permission insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Homerton?

The right level of lack of planning permission indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Virgin Money. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

I have paid off my mortgage with Yorkshire BS. I assume I don't need a Homerton conveyancing practitioner on the Yorkshire BS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Yorkshire BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Yorkshire BS mortgage from the register. Yorkshire BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Yorkshire BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Yorkshire BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Yorkshire BS mortgage has been paid off.

I note that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to have this when purchasing a residence in Homerton? or Apparently there is a law dating back centuries that could mean that house owners living in a parish church boundary will be compelled to contribute towards maintenance to the chancel within the church. Is this applicable for conveyancing in Homerton?

Unless a prior acquisition of the house completed post 12 October 2013 you can assume that conveyancing practitioners carrying out conveyancing in Homerton to remain encouraging a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

I have a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Homerton. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Britannia. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Homerton and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business premises in Homerton and how can you help?

The particular law that you refer to provides a safeguard to business lessees, giving them the dueness to apply to court for a new tenancy and remain in occupation at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act for protection and help with commercial conveyancing in Homerton
