Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hornsey

My husband and I are planning to purchase a 3 bedroom flat in Hornsey with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Hornsey solicitor, but the bank advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel solicitors or retain our Hornsey conveyancer and pay for one of their panel lawyers to act for them. We regard this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Hornsey conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

I am selling my house in Hornsey. Does the lawyer have to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently currently.

I am selling our home in Hornsey and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Hornsey lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a web based conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Hornsey. We have lived in Hornsey for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Hornsey. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hornsey

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for my conveyancing in Hornsey. I've land on a site which looks to be the perfect offering If it is possible to get all this stuff done via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

At long last our conveyancing in Hornsey completes on Friday, however the owners I am purchasing from wishes to vacate 24 hours later at midday. Can I agree to such a plan?

You can't complete on a Saturday due to the bank systems aren't working.
