The property market in Hoxton is heating up. What can I do to expedite matters?
First, If the seller is applying a tight deadline to sign contracts it is highly recommended that your lawyer is familiar with the location as they will make use of local relationships and intelligence. It is possible that they could have handled previousproperties in the same road. Therefore consider using a Hoxton conveyancing solicitor. Second, double check that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is estimated that 18% of Hoxton conveyancing transactions are frustrated or jeopardised after discovering a purchaser’s solicitor was not on their mortgage lender’s member panel. This can often result in the home move being delayed by as much as 21 days. It is estimated that this issue affects in the region of 100,000 home moves every year. Many Hoxton conveyancing firms can not act for certain mortgage companies so do check as early as possible.
I just acquired a flat at auction in Hoxton. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?
Given that you have now legally bound yourself to purchase you must appoint a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of priority as you now have a pending deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. Every auction property will ordinarily have an associated auction set of papers. This should include most,if not all of the paperwork that your lawyer will need. If you have purchased leasehold property the conveyancing pack may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork relating to a leasehold property. You must hand this to the solicitor working for you at the earliest opportunity. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding in order to complete on the date specified in the contract.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Hoxton. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Hoxton?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be called to collect the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
How can we know in advance if a Hoxton conveyancing solicitor on the Santander panel is any good?

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Hoxton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Hoxton I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hoxton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
