Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Knightsbridge

We went with a Knightsbridge based firm for my conveyancing in Knightsbridge yesterday. Reviewing the Terms and Conditions it is apparent thatI am responsible for charges even if the sale doesn't happen. Would I be best advised to choose a web based conveyancing brokerage who offer no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Knightsbridge?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be higher to cover those transactions that do not go ahead. Do bear in mind that such promotions generally do not cover disbursements such as Knightsbridge conveyancing search expenses.

Me and my partner are buying our first house. Our lawyer has contact usto see if we would like to order additional conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's appropriate for conveyancing in Knightsbridge

The type of Knightsbridge conveyancing searches depends primarily on the property, the location, the probability of any of these risks, your knowledge of the locality and risks, your overall approach to risk. What is important is that you properly understand what information each search could give you. Then you can make a decision if you consider that you need that search. Should you be unclear, ask your solicitor to advise.

I purchased a freehold property in Knightsbridge but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Knightsbridge and has limited impact for conveyancing in Knightsbridge but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.

We are due to move property in December. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Knightsbridge. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across this website.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your estate agent but this can only be done after the sellers solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. You should tell the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Knightsbridge or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Knightsbridge.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Knightsbridge. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Knightsbridge accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have put an offer on a flat, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Knightsbridge. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with HSBC going?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Knightsbridge conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your lawyer is on the HSBC approved list. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of home buyers would apply for the mortgage with HSBC and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with the conveyancing in Knightsbridge.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house are lost. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Knightsbridge 4 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?

As long as the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be held by HMLR with a Title Number. It is easy to perform a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and obtain up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for a small fee.

Our conveyancing in Knightsbridge is set to complete next Friday, however the vendors I am buying off wishes to move out the next day at afternoon. Can I accept this?

If you are having a bank loan then your conveyancing practitioner will insist that you have vacant possession on Friday - the mortgage company will require it.
