I can see plenty of information on this site about conveyancing in Kew but what is your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in Kew
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the cheapest Kew conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.
The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Kew. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
About to purchase flat in Kew. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Kew solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
I have todayfound out that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Kew for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in Kew I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease.

Should you need a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

I wish to let out my leasehold flat in Kew. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Notwithstanding that your previous Kew conveyancing solicitor is no longer around you can review your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the apartment. The rule is that if the lease is non-specific, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you need to seek consent from your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet without first obtaining permission. The consent should not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
