Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hoxton

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Hoxton. I would like to know the logic why all Hoxton lawyers are not on all mortgage company panels?

Lenders tend to restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing practices on their panel. A common example of such criteria being that the firm needs to have two or more partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, some banks for example HSBC decided to limit the number of organisations they use to represent them. It is worth noting that banks have no responsibility for the quality of advice supplied by any Hoxton lawyer on their approved list. Increases in mortgage fraud was the key driver in the reduction of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there are contrary assessments concerning the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from HM Land Registry indicates that thousands of conveyancing practices only conduct less than three conveyances annually. Those vindicating conveyancing panel pruning ask why law firms should have the right to remain on a conveyancing panel when it is evident that property law is not their primary expertise?

I am assisting my step-mother sell her property in Hoxton. Does the conveyancer order the energy assessment or should I organise this?

After the demise of HIPs, energy assessments became a compulsory element of selling a house. An energy performance certificate needs to be to hand in advance of the property being advertised. It is not something that law firms ordinarily organise. If you are instructing a Hoxton conveyancing lawyer they might be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with reputable Hoxton providers

We are aiming to move house in May. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Hoxton. Conveyancing solicitor was found prior to coming across this page.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from your property agent but this should only be done after the sellers solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you will need to advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Hoxton or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Hoxton.

Planning on purchasing a house in Hoxton. 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 HSBC 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 Hoxton conveyancing practitioner is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hoxton

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

Please set out some of distinct benefits to using a local conveyancing practitioner in Hoxton

Many purchasers and sellers in Hoxton decide on using a local conveyancing practitioner so that they can visit in the event that they have questions, and to execute paperwork without using the Royal Mail.

One could say that there exists a marginal advantage in selecting a lawyer nearby to a house you are purchasing, due to the in-depth knowledge of the region and potential local concerns - but this is debatable. The majority of conveyancers conduct their work via email and could be anywhere in the world.
