Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hounslow

I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (seven years old) in Hounslow. 95% of the properties are already disposed of. Is it strictly necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Hounslow?

If you are acquiring a property with the assistance of a loan, your lender will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Hounslow conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. Your lawyer, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Hounslow.

My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Hounslow. I need to find out if they are accepted on the Birmingham Midshires approved list of lawyers. Can you help?

The first thing to do is e-mail the lawyer and ask them whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you should get in touch with Birmingham Midshires who may be able to confirm.

Me and my brother own a renovated Victorian property in Hounslow. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Barclays . 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 under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be 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 Hounslow and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.

I am purchasing my first flat in Hounslow with a loan from Leeds Building Society. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent told me not to tell my solicitor about this side-deal as it would put at risk my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
