Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kentish Town

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is removed from the Kent Reliance Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Kentish Town?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

I have just appointed agents to market my basement flat in Kentish Town. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have recently had a quarterly service charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is clear the maintenance contribution as you normally would given that all ground rent and service payments will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
