Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kensal Rise

Is the fact that my solicitor in Kensal Rise is not on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s conveyancing?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should contact the Kensal Rise conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

We're in Kensal Rise, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Nationwide , and our solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I'm the single recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Kensal Rise. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in May. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement is principally there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Lloyds. Kensal Rise conveyancing lawyers have been appointed. How long does it take for Lloyds to send the offer to the solicitor?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Lloyds done the valuation? Have you advised Lloyds as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

My wife and I are at the point of viewing apartments in Kensal Rise and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Co-operative.

You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the selling agent. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with Co-operative, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Kensal Rise differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Kensal Rise approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because builders in Kensal Rise usually acquire the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Kensal Rise or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Kensal Rise ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks may not give a loan on this type of house.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different requirements from Nationwide. If you contact us we can look into this further via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Kensal Rise. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

My company is hoping to lease a unit on a shopping parade. Can you recommend conveyancers offering no-sale-no fees for commercial conveyancing in Kensal Rise for less than 1500k?

We can recommend firms who have specialist knowledge of commercial conveyancing in Kensal Rise, including the sale and purchase of businesses as well as simply property. Whether you are intending to purchase or lease a shop, pub, restaurant, office, retail premises or a whole business we will put you in touch with the right firm.
