It is 10 years ago since I acquired my house in Hoxton. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I am unable to find my deeds. Will this cause complications?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who handled the purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Hoxton involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

We are planning to purchase with Melton Mowbray Building Society. We have called around locally yet cant to find a Hoxton conveyancing firm on the Melton Mowbray Building Society approved list. Please you help?

You should make use of the search tool on this web page. Pick the lender and type Hoxton or your location and you will see a number of lawyer based in Hoxton or by proximity to you.

There are a variety of conveyancing solicitors in Hoxton but how do I know who's good?

It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Hoxton conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Hoxton. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Hoxton?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be able to pick up the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs early afternoon.

Can I be sure that the Hoxton conveyancing solicitor on the Virgin Money panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Hoxton getting recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer handling your transaction.

I am buying a new build house in Hoxton with a mortgage from HSBC Bank. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will adversely affect my loan with HSBC Bank. Is this normal?.

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.

As co-executor for the estate of my grandmother I am selling a property in Cardiff but live in Hoxton. My solicitor (who is 300 kilometers from mehas requested that I execute a stat dec ahead of the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Hoxton to witness this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are located in Hoxton
