Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hounslow

We are purchasing a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Hounslow who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Clydesdale . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Hounslow.

I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to use a high street conveyancing solicitor in Hounslow?

You should check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel conveyancers if you accept the "fee-free" incentive. Call the lender and check if they make available a cash alternative. Some banks have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Hounslow.

How does conveyancing in Hounslow differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Hounslow contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Hounslow tend to buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Hounslow or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Hounslow I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Hounslow in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I am selling my home. My former lawyers has retired. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Hounslow if that affects matters.

You should use our search tool to help you find a solicitor for your conveyancing in Hounslow. We have connected thousands of home buyers and sellers with lender approved solicitors to ensure that the legalities of their house move runs with a minimum of fuss.

We are purchasing a three room first floor flatin Hounslow with a residential mortgage from a mortgage company. We wish to instruct our lawyer in Hounslow however our mortgage company inform us now that she’s not approved on their "panel". We have to appoint from the our bank panel solicitors or stay with our Hounslow solicitor and incur the extra fees for one of their panel ones to represent our bank. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our mortgage company use our Hounslow lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The bank mortgage offered to you is subject to conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the lender's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had open panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Hounslow : 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 solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
