Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ickenham

My wife and I changing mortgage lender for our penthouse in Ickenham with Nottingham. We have a son 18 who lives with us. Our solicitor requested us to identify anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who reside at the property. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the apartment is repossessed. I have two questions (1) Is this form unique to the Nottingham conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we remortgaged 5 years ago (2) In signing this form is our son in any way compromising his right to inherit the property?

First, rest assured that your Nottingham conveyancing panel solicitor is doing the right thing as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Nottingham. This is solely used to protect Nottingham if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Nottingham had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.

I am buying a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Ickenham who is on the Clydesdale approved. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Clydesdale in certain locations such as Ickenham. We dont recommend any particular firm.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the house moving as a first time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Ickenham. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Ickenham?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Ickenham. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens early afternoon.

Is it the case that all Ickenham solicitor practices on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be overseen by the CLC.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Ickenham bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Ickenham conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

As long as the lawyer is on the lender approved list, they must comply with the CML Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home can not be found. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Ickenham 5 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?

In today’s world there are copies made of almost everything, and your solicitor will be aware precisely where to find all the appropriate paperwork so you may purchase or dispose of your house without any difficulty. If duplicates can’t be found, your conveyancer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on the premises.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the estate agent advised that the seller will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's chosen solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Ickenham

We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to use your own,trusted Ickenham conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will give the negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by HQ.

How and when do I pay stamp duty due for my house transaction in Ickenham?
