My wife and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Kingsbury and my parents have sent the exchange deposit to my solicitor. I am now advised that as the deposit has not arrived from me my lawyer needs to disclose this to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the bank about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to be an issue?
Your conveyancer is duty bound to clarify with the bank to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your mortgage company if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
I am aiming to move property in July. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Kingsbury. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across your website.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the property agent but this should only take place once the vendors conveyancers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. You can tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal company but can help you locate a conveyancing in Kingsbury or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Kingsbury.
is it true that all Kingsbury solicitor practices on the Principality conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Principality approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of banks do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be regulated by the CLC.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Kingsbury off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Virgin Money. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have 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 Virgin Money, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Kingsbury I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Kingsbury in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
