Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hornsey

I went with a Hornsey based firm for our conveyancing in Hornsey today. Upon checking the Terms it is apparent thatwe are responsible for costs even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or instruct an internet lawyer who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Hornsey?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to neutralise those cases that do not proceed. Please beware that such arrangements rarely cover disbursements such as Hornsey conveyancing search charges.

My partner and I are spending time viewing flats in Hornsey and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a mortgage with UBS.

You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the EA. As you are obtaining a mortgage with UBS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel.

Planning on purchasing a house in Hornsey. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Hornsey lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

Our offer on a detached house in Hornsey has been accepted, the owners do however have a connected purchase. The sellers have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Hornsey. What do I do now? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Principality?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Hornsey conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancer is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to proceed with searches.

I got the keys to my apartment on 4 January and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Hornsey said it should be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Hornsey particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Hornsey registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any 3rd parties. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the property so registration formalities is not usually an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Hornsey prior to appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders may not give a loan on a flying freehold property.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the agent has warned us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint the agent's recommended solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Hornsey
