Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Isle of Dogs. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?

Now that you have for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you should instruct a conveyancing practitioner quickly as you will have a fast approaching a fixed date to complete the purchase. All auction property will have an associated legal pack. This will include evidence of title and search results. In the case of leasehold property the conveyancing pack may contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork specific to a leasehold property.

I have paid off my mortgage with Lloyds. I assume I don't need a Isle of Dogs property lawyer on the Lloyds panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Lloyds mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Lloyds mortgage from the register. Lloyds, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Lloyds has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Lloyds has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Lloyds mortgage has been paid off.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Isle of Dogs. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

Do I need to be wary about third parties that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a local Isle of Dogs conveyancing company?

As is the case with many professional services, often referrals from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are many parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may suggest lawyers to appoint. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the right to select your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that many lenders specify a panel list of conveyancers you must use for the lender related work in your transaction.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent has warned us that the owners will only issue a contract if we appoint their preferred conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Isle of Dogs

We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Isle of Dogs conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will earn the estate agent a referral fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by senior management.

I pay a maintenance fee for my ground floor flat in Isle of Dogs. Due to losing my job and other issues I slipped into arrears with remittance. The management company agreed a clearance schedule but there is still three grand currently outstanding.

I want to sell and I am panicking this could threaten to derail the sale if I have to discharge the amount due in advance. I'd like to sell up and then pay them back with the proceeds - is this achievable?

You should speak with the conveyancing practitioner carrying out your Isle of Dogs conveyancing but it may be possible to arrange for the arrears to be passed to the buyers. The contractual price payable would be reduced to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They would then discharge the arrears following completion of the sale.
