We previously selected conveyancing lawyers based in Isleworth on the Aldermore solicitor panel. They have just billed me a supplemental fee for handling the Aldermore mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Aldermore?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor may levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Aldermore but by your Isleworth property lawyer. Some firms on the Aldermore panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
I have paid off my mortgage with Co-operative. I assume I don't need a Isleworth property lawyer on the Co-operative panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Co-operative 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 Co-operative mortgage from the register. Co-operative, 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:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Co-operative has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Co-operative has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Isleworth. I have a mortgage agreed with TSB. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Isleworth differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Isleworth come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Isleworth usually purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Isleworth or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Isleworth I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Isleworth for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
