Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hornchurch

My fiance’s brother is a property lawyer. I am hopeful that I will receive mate’s fee for conveyancing, but if not, what level of costs should I be paying for conveyancing in Hornchurch?

My wife and I have lately bought a house in Hornchurch. We have noticed several problems with the house which we suspect were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Hornchurch?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Hornchurch. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller completes a questionnaire referred to as a SPIF. If the information ends up being misleading, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Hornchurch.

I have been recommended a conveyancing solicitor in Hornchurch. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the Bank of Ireland approved list of lawyers. Could you help?

You should contact your lawyer and enquire whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you should get in touch with Bank of Ireland who may be able to assist.

I moved into my apartment on 12 April and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Hornchurch expressed confidence that it should be concluded in less than a month. Are transfers in Hornchurch uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Hornchurch registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today roughly 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration takes place after the new owner is living at the property so an expedited registration is not always top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I'm buying a new build house in Hornchurch benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not to tell my solicitor about this side-deal as it could impact my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am selling a property in Swansea but I am based in Hornchurch. My lawyer (approximately 200 kilometers awayhas requested that I execute a statutory declaration ahead of completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Hornchurch to witness this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in Hornchurch
